Download Abiotic Stress Physiology of Horticultural Crops by N.K. Srinivasa Rao,K.S. Shivashankara,R.H. Laxman PDF

By N.K. Srinivasa Rao,K.S. Shivashankara,R.H. Laxman

This booklet brings jointly fresh advances within the quarter of abiotic tension tolerance in numerous greens, fruit vegetation, plantation vegetation and tuber plants. the most demanding situations to bettering the productiveness of horticultural plants are the differing kinds of abiotic stresses quite often as a result of weather switch on the local and international point. warmth, drought, chilly and salinity are the key abiotic stresses that adversely have an effect on development and productiveness and will set off a chain of morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular alterations in numerous horticultural crops. 
To date, there are not any books overlaying horticultural crop-specific abiotic tension tolerance mechanisms and their administration. Addressing that hole, the booklet is split into 2 sections, the 1st of which highlights fresh advances within the basic elements of abiotic tension tolerance just like the function of hormones, reactive oxygen species, seed remedies, molecular mechanisms of warmth tolerance and heavy steel toxicity, whereas the second one makes a speciality of the abiotic tension tolerance mechanisms of varied greens, fruit vegetation, plantation plants and tuber vegetation. It comprises finished discussions of fruit plants like mango, grapes, banana, litchi and arid area culmination; greens vegetation like tomato, capsicum, onion and tuber vegetation; and plantation vegetation like coconut, areca nut, oil palm and black pepper. one of the techniques for plant pressure survival, examples of either avoidance and tolerance appropriate to specific vegetation are tested intimately, supported by way of chosen finished case reviews of growth. As such, the ebook bargains a useful source fitted to scientists and graduate scholars operating within the fields of crop development, genetic engineering, and the abiotic tension tolerance of horticultural crops.

Polyploidy and Genome Evolution

Polyploidy – whole-genome duplication (WGD) – is a primary driving force of biodiversity with major effects for genome constitution, association, and evolution.  as soon as thought of a speciation technique universal merely in vegetation, polyploidy is now famous to have performed an important function within the constitution, gene content material, and evolution of so much eukaryotic genomes.
