Chapter 1: Gravity Sensing, Graviorientation and Microgravity.- Chapter 2: Methods for Gravitational Biology Research.- Chapter 3: Gravitaxis in Flagellates and Ciliates.- Chapter 4: Gravitropism in Tip-Growing Rhizoids and Protonemata of Characean Algae.- Chapter 5: Gravitropism in Fungi, Mosses and Ferns.- Chapter 6: Gravitropism in Higher Plants: Cellular Aspects.- Chapter 7: Gravitropism in Higher Plants: Molecular Aspects.- Chapter 8: Bioregenerative Life Support Systems in Space Research.
This book summarizes what is currently known about gravity sensing and response mechanisms in microorganisms, fungi, lower and higher plants; starting from the historical eye-opening experiments from the 19th century up to today's extremely rapid advancing cellular, molecular and biotechnological research. All forms of life are constantly exposed to gravity and it can be assumed that almost all organisms have developed sensors and respond in one way or the other to the unidirectional acceleration force,this books shows us some of these different ways.
