While several extensive works have appeared during the past IO years or more (133, 178, 195, 182, 7), many recent reviews have appropriately included only one specialphase of auxin investigation such as ‘mechanismof action’ (6), ‘cell enlargement’ (rgd), ‘tropisms’ (ITS), etc. Others have dealt with several more or less related aspectsof auxin which the writers have consideredto offer ‘particular progress’ (I 5) or specialapplication (x52). In the present review it is intended to refer to such comprehensivecoverage where necessary,and to concentrate on those aspectsof the broad subject which have not been previously reviewed in detail. Since practically all auxin effects are physiological, however, it is desirable to emphasizechiefly those effects involving native auxin which occur in the course of natural growth and development. Unusual and drastic effects produced by severe treatment with synthetic compounds or unphysiological concentrations of native auxins are included only where significant information leads to a better understanding of natural mechanisms, Further restriction is endeavored http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physiological Reviews The American Physiological Society
