Plant physiology: Characteristics, Breeding and Genetics


Ramdane Dris and Catherine Barry-Ryan

Category: Plant

The book contains papers presented at the workshop on ‘Plant Physiology – Characteristics, Breeding and Genetics’ which was held 1-4 June 2001 at Babtai Horicultural Research Institute, Babtai, Kaunas, Lithuania. Papers were selected for inclusion in this publication after a process of peer-review and evaluation by an editorial board. This book additionally includes fresh information on current scientific  research activities ongoing in similar  fields.
Plants are the primary gatherers and providers of cellular energy and suppliers of organic nutrients for virtually all others organisms. Some fulfil this role by growing  wild in uncultivated areas. Plants are a renewable resource that can be generated in an environmentally acceptable manner  and provide a route to an environmentally sustainable development. In order to understand plant physiology therefore, we need to know the nature of the cells that make up the tissues and organs of plants and the spatial arrangement of these organs.
The time seemed appropriate for reviewing past and recent achievements in plant physiology and attempting to a futuristic prospectus. This book focuses on factors affecting physiology changes occurring during the growth and development of plants and their impact on crop breeding. The book looks at, the impact of physiological changes on the activity of some metabolisms. This book will be useful to scientists, researches, students or experts investigating plant physiology, plant biotechnology, plant pathology breeding and genetics.
