  • Biosaline Agriculture and High Salinity Tolerance

    A major threat to agricultural productivity worldwide is undoubtedly due to environments with stressful factors including drought, salinity, waterlogging, extreme temperatures, non-optimal levels of mineral nutrients etc. Based on contributions presented at the International Conference on Biosaline Agriculture and High Salinity Tolerance in ...

  • Biochemical Mechanisms of Detoxification in Higher Plants

    Plants play a key role in purifying the biosphere of the toxic effects of industrial activity. This book shows how systematic application of the results of investigations into the metabolism of xenobiotics (foreign, often toxic substances) in plants could make a vastly increased contribution to planetary well-being. Deep physiological knowledge ...

  • Biological Nitrogen Fixation: Towards Poverty Alleviation through Sustainable Agriculture

    This volume covers recent developments in both fundamental and applied research in biological nitrogen fixation. It emphasizes the application of biological nitrogen fixation for sustainable agriculture, which should lead to poverty alleviation, environmental protection, and good agricultural practices generally. The roles of, and advances in, ...

  • Plant Nitrogen

    Jointly published with INRA, Paris.This book covers all aspects of the transfer of nitrogen from the soil and air to a final resting place in the seed protein of a crop plant. It describes the physiological and molecular mechanisms of ammonium and nitrate transport and assimilation, including symbiotic nitrogen fixation by the Rhizobiacea. Amino ...

  • Molecular Analysis of Plant Adaptation to the Environment

    Adverse environmental factors can impose stress on plants and influence the expression of the full genetic potential for growth and reproduction. The capability of plants to develop plastic response reactions, to adapt to environmental stress situations, is unique in the biological world. A goal of the research described in this volume is to ...

  • Plant Physiological Ecology

    The growth, reproduction and geographical distribution of plants are profoundly influenced by their physiological ecology: the interaction with the surrounding physical, chemical, and biological environments. This renowned textbook is notable in emphasizing that the mechanisms underlying plant physiological ecology can be found at the levels of ...

  • Chlorophylls and Bacteriochlorophylls

    Chlorophylls are the most obvious natural pigments on Earth where they can be observed even from satellites in outer space: they also sustain life on Earth through their involvement in photosynthesis. With 37 authoritative chapters, this book reviews recent progress and current status of studies on the chemistry, metabolism and spectroscopy of ...

  • Physiology and Molecular Biology of Stress Tolerance in Plants

    Today, biologists all over the world speak the same scientific language of molecular biology and use the same molecular tools. More interest and attention is given to molecular biology of abiotic stress tolerance and modes of installing better tolerant mechanisms in crop plants. These studies make plants capable of sustaining their yields even ...

  • Plant-microbe Interactions 1

    This new series will cover all aspects of research on plant-microbe interactions, including beneficial plant symbioses such as symbiotic nitrogen fixation, plant pathology, plant genetics, molecular biology, agronomy, ecology, and phytochemistry. Over the past several years there has been a tremendous increase in our knowledge of ...

  • Root Physiology: from Gene to Function

    In the last decade, enormous progress has been made on the physiology of plant roots, including on a wide range of molecular aspects. Much of that progress has been captured in the chapters of this book. Breakthroughs have been made possible through integration of molecular and whole-plant aspects. The classical boundaries between physiology, ...

  • Abiotic Stress Adaptation in Plants

    Environmental insults such as extremes of temperature, extremes of water status as well as deteriorating soil conditions pose major threats to agriculture and food security. Employing contemporary tools and techniques from all branches of science, attempts are being made worldwide to understand how plants respond to abiotic stresses with the aim ...

  • Advances in Plant and Animal Boron Nutrition

    Boron is one of the essential micronutrients for higher plants growth and development, and more and more studies have been conducted to establish boron as an essential element in animals and humans. This book reviews all aspects of boron research in recent years and is based on the Third International Symposium on all Aspects of Plant and Animal ...
