520    This book focuses on the biophysical aspects of tip growth
       : How do physical parameters like pressure, water 
       potential, electrical fields, or ion currents contribute 
       to and influence this specialized and highly dynamic form 
       of cell growth? It provides an updated and balanced 
       overview of the current state of knowledge and future 
       research perspectives regarding how pollen tubes' growth 
       is driven and regulated by molecular interactions 
       underlying the cellular processes. The individual chapters
       address topics ranging from molecular biophysical concepts
       to comprehensive omic studies and computational modeling 
       of the tip growth process. In addition, a chapter on root 
       hair cells is included to provide an alternative view on 
       the underlying molecular principles of tip growth in 
       general. Each chapter provides a summary of cutting-edge 
       techniques, results and experimental data; a statement, 
       hypothesis or conclusion on the importance of the aspect 
       described for tip growth, particularly pollen tip growth; 
       and addresses open gaps in our understanding and potential
       approaches to remedying them. The book offers experimental
       and theoretical solutions to help established researchers 
       and newcomers to the field alike solve the many mysterious
       behaviors of pollen tube tips.
