Preface
Plant Physiology is a science concerned with processes and functions, the responses of plants to changes in environment and the growth and development that results from responses. A great deal of information about plant physiological processes has been gathered during the last century, largely because of the growth in these cognate sciences. The present era may be termed as the era of realistic approach for integrating the efforts of scientists working in different fields of specialisation to intensify their activities for sustainable development. Sustainable development embodies the sense of development in such a manner in which we could ensure the environmentally safe welfare activities. In the present scenario role of plant physiologists in environmental protection, in enhancing the agricultural and horticultural production in afforestation programme with reasonable to economic viability, in quality maintenance of horticultural and agricultural produce in elevating the export potential and also in meeting the requirements of certain industries relating to the production of agro chemicals etc is very important. Looking to the present need plant physiologists shall have to shed their habit of working in isolation. They cannot afford to be defamed as basic scientists. They will have to come forward with more vigour and enthusiasm to bridge the gap between traditional ecological knowledge, traditional farm practices and the modern agro-biotechnologies. In this age of very rapidly expanding information technology, plant physiologists also shall have to think globally, act globally as well as locally. They should make all round efforts to collect feedback from grass-root workers agriculturists, environmentalists and foresters. The holistic approach is the only solution to tackle problems relating to the protection of environment while maintaining the pace of development. Plant physiologists shall have to be more active for finding constraints in low productivity for agricultural, horticultural to forest species especially in comparison with other countries like the U.S.A. If there is an interaction between genetics and environment responsible for such a situation, what role may be played by eco-physiologists and plant biologists to break the barrier. In the new millennium, we will have to produce more food and other agricultural commodities under the condition of diminishing per capita arable land and irrigation water resources and fast expanding biotic stresses. Enhancing the production of agricultural sector without taking care of environmental safety shall not be acceptable to society, as they will go

Preface
against the concepts of sustainable development. For sustainable agricultural development, we should focus on productivity and our R D priorities must be carefully formulated. Advances in Plant Physiology contains 17 articles on different facets of Plant Physiology. The book embodies original and thought provoking review articles and research papers contributed by experienced and eminent specialists in their respective fields. Articles on diagnosis and management of physiological disorders advances in physiology of vegetable crups effect of sulphur dioxide on growth, photosynthesis and antioxidant enzyme activities effect of herbicide on pollen germination protected cultivation of vegetables in north Indian condition etc. have been reviewed covering latest information in the field. Topics on abiotic stresses and physiology of drought resistance stress caused by pollutant and micronutrient stresses and their management have added to the value of the book. Articles on system of rice intensification a physiological perspective effect of different photoquality on germination and germination and early seedling growth absolute growth and growth rate of guava of different maturities during the ontogeny provide information on role of different physiological processes. It also covers information on breeding efficient crops for dryland condition
