Críticas:

In an age of the triumphalism of molecular biology, in particular, the editors should be congratulated for recognizing the value of an approach that integrates plant physiology, genomics, whole organism biology, and dare we mention it here, even zoology.
―Steven D. Johnson, School of Biological and Conservation Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal Pietermaritzburg, in South African Journal of Botany, Vol. 73, No. 3

The book is organized into five sections ... and 14 chapters. Each chapter contains a list of references. These are mostly abundant, useful, and recent. The 27 authors of the book are experts in various disciplines, coming from the USA, Europe, Israel, and Canada. Tables, figures and images in black and white are abundant and contribute to understanding. ... This book is relevant to academic and industrial researchers interested in floral scent. It will have also impact [for] the academic syllabus of Floral Biology courses. ... it is a unique opportunity of reviewing the state of the art in this matter and learning about plant odor and scent.
―Concepción Obón, Applied Biology Department, University Miguel Hernández, Spain and Diego Rivera, Plant Biology Department, University of Murcia, Spain, in Economic Botany, 2007, Vol. 61, No. 1

Reseña del editor:

As with nearly all living creatures, humans have always been attracted and intrigued by floral scents. Yet, while we have been manufacturing perfumes for at least 5000 years to serve a myriad of religious, sexual, and medicinal purposes, until very recently, the limitation of our olfactory faculty has greatly hindered our capacity to clearly and objectively measure scent. Today, thanks to advances in practical methodologies and affordable instrumentation, we are now able to collect, separate, and identify volatile compounds with aromatic impact. These advances are leading to much intensive investigation that has already resulted in many highly insightful and useful discoveries.

Biology of Floral Scent provides the first comprehensive treatment of the biology of floral scents. It reviews the impressive research being done across several disciplines, incorporating molecular biology, enzymology, chemistry, entomology, genetic engineering, and functional genomics. Organized into a single volume for the first time, this landmark work covers every major aspect of floral scent research including-

  • Function and significance in the interactions between plants and pollinators
  • Composition and enzymology
  • Evolutionary aspects
  • Commercial applications, including the use of recently identified scent genes to genetically engineer flowers to produce new scents

    Meeting the needs of plant scientists, cell and molecular biologists, natural product chemists, pharmacognosists, and entomologists, as well as students in these fields, this work provides the background, findings, and insight that will stimulate new research to further advance an understanding of floral scent biology.
