Phytohormones are closely involved in directing plant growth, coordinating with the metabolism that provides energy and the building blocks to develop the form that we recognize as plant. This book provides information on Salicylic Acid, a chemical that has significant impact on plant life, and could be raised to the status of the phytohormones because of its significant impact on various aspects of the plant life.
