plant rooting Books

  • Roots

    The root is the organ that functions as the interface between the plant and the earth environment. Many human management practices involving crops, forests and natural vegetation also affect plant growth through the soil and roots. Understanding the morphology and function of roots from the cellular level to the level of the whole root system is ...

  • Root Methods

    This comprehensive review presents all modern methods for plant root research, both in the field and in the laboratory. It covers the effects of environmental interactions with root growth and function, and focuses in particular on the assessment of root distribution and dynamics. The processing of root observations, analysis and modelling of root ...

  • Microbial Root Endophytes

    Plant roots may not only be colonized by mycorrhizal fungi, but also by a myriad of bacterial and fungal root endophytes that are usually not considered by the investigators of classic symbioses. This is the first book dedicated to the interactions of non-mycorrhizal microbial endophytes with plant roots. The phenotypes of these interactions can ...

  • Interactions in the Root Environment - An Integrated Approach

    This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the Rothamsted Millennium Conference 'Interactions in the Root Environment - an Integrated Approach'. The meeting brought together scientists from a range of disciplines interested in the relationship between soil biology and plant growth, reflected by the contents of the volume. Topics range ...

  • 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, ...

  • The Supporting Roots of Trees and Woody Plants Form, Function and Physiology

    This book is devoted to the structural roots of woody plants, with a particular emphasis on the anchorage, form and development of tree root systems. For the first time, a large number of papers on the architecture and biomechanics of structural root systems are presented together with discussions on consequences for tree stability in both ...

  • Nutrient Acquisition by Plants

    Adaptation and evolution of terrestrial plants depend, to a large extent, on their ability to acquire nutrients. This is a modern and integrative treatment of the mechanisms controlling plant nutrient uptake and how plants respond to changes in the environment. The following key topics are covered: soil nutrient bioavailability; root responses to ...

  • Cryopreservation of Plant Germplasm I

    Whole plants have been regenerated from isolated protoplasts, cells, tissues, and organs freeze-preserved in liquid nitrogen. Thus cryopreservation has proved to be an important tool for the storage and conservation of plant genetic resources. Numerous experts have contributed to this volume, which is divided into the following sections: General ...

  • Plant Surface Microbiology

    Most plants rely on the co-existence with microorganisms: both groups benefit from these symbioses. It has been shown that a large number of specific genes in plants and microorganisms are only activated during these interactions. Of course, various microbes also act as pathogens. Interactions between plants and microorganisms are often located on ...

  • Recent Advances in Plant Biotechnology

    The primary purpose of this book is to tell the reader what plant biotechnology is all about – progressing from its roots in the basic sciences to its current applications in the biological and agricultural sciences, industry, and medicine. These widespread applications signal the fact that plant biotechnology is increasingly gaining in ...

  • Plant Nutrition of Greenhouse Crops

    Plant nutrition in greenhouse cultivation differs in many essential aspects from field crops and justified the development of a special publication on this subject. The high productions realised and the specific produce quality requirements ensure high uptakes of nutrients and a careful tuning of the application. The covering with glass or plastic ...

  • Plant Growth Substances

    In a convenient, single-source reference, this book examines plant growth substances and their relationship to a wide range of physiological processes, ranging from seed germination through the death of the plant. If offers a clear illustration of the pragmatic uses of plant substances in agriculture and demonstrates how basic laboratory ...

  • Plant Developmental Biology - Biotechnological Perspectives

    Understanding the mechanisms whereby plant development is regulated is crucial for crop improvement using genetic engineering. This work, comprising two volumes, reviews recent advances in plant developmental biology and explores the possibility of their practical applications from biotechnological perspectives.Volume 1 deals with the plant model ...

  • Molecular Mechanisms of Plant and Microbe Coexistence

    Molecular Mechanisms of Plant and Microbe Coexistence presents studies on the complex and manifold interactions of plants and microbes at the population, genomics and proteomics level.The role of soil microbial diversity in enhancing plant health and plant microbe beneficial symbioses is discussed. Microbial communities are shown in the light of ...

  • Cell Biology of Plant Nematode Parasitism

    Plant-parasitic nematodes are among the most destructive plant pathogens, causing enormous losses to agronomic crops worldwide. This book provides an up-to-date review of research related to two of the most important nematode pests, root-knot and cyst nematodes. Chapters cover early plant-nematode interactions, identification of nematode proteins ...
