Summary This book is developed from papers presented at the 2nd International Symposium on Plant Dormancy held in Angers, France, in July 1999. Its 25 chapters are organized into 5 sections: Whole plant and organ physiology (6 chapters); Water relations and stress (5); Abscisic acid and hormonal control (5); Biochemical and cellular aspects (5); and Genetics and molecular biology (4). Dormancy of organs including seeds, buds and storage organs is included, and plant species discussed include horticultural and field crops, trees and wild plants
