Advances In Plant Physiology by P C Trivedi
In the present scenario, with the increasing pressure posed by a rapidly growing population and diminishing per capita arable land and sources of irrigation, the role of plant physiologists in increasing agricultural and horticultural production by economically viable means, is significant. The present book incorporates articles covering latest information on the varied aspects of plant physiology, like diagnosis and management of physiological disorders in fruit production, physiology of vegetable crops, breeding crops for dryland conditions, effect of sulphur dioxide on growth, photosynthesis, antioxidant enzyme activities and so on. Topics such as abiotic stress, macronutrient stress and stress caused by pollutants also form part of the book.
Audience of the Book :
|This book would serve as a useful reference for teachers, scientists and planners in the fields of Botany, Plant Physiology, Agriculture, Forestry and related fields.|
The main features of the book are as follows:
1.Contains 17 review articles and research papers discussing diagnosis and management of physiological disorders, advances in physiology of vegetables crops, effect of sulphur dioxide on growth, etc.
2.The book also lays emphasis on abiotic stresses including draught resistance, micronutrient stress, stress caused by pollutants etc.
3.All the articles are well supported with pictures, and tables.
