Book Description

Essential for students of both undergraduate and postgraduate classes, Modern Plant Physiology addresses new developments in tissue culture, stress physiology, and secondary metabolities. This detailed and comprehensive handbook, written by a renowned figure in botanical education, focuses on many essential concepts, including: the metabolisms of nitrogen, amino acids, protein, fat, and nucleic acid; photosynthesis; photorespiration; hormones; senescence, aging and abscission; photoperiodism; and the physiology of flowering. The text offers tabulated differences between allied processes such as Fluorescence and Phosphorescence, thus providing a clear conception and better understanding of the subject matter.
