In over 7,600 entries, this dictionary covers all aspects of plant sciences from genomics to horticulture and phylogenetics to taxonomy. It is an ideal reference work for students of plant sciences and ancillary subjects, as well as for anyone with an interest in botany.
The book comprises of different chapters associated with methodology in Plant science (Botany), describing in a simple and comprehensive way. The importance of creativity and motivation in research, the planning and proposal of research project, the description of different techniques involved in research are described in an elaborate way. It also includes the sources/collection of scientific information, method of scientific report/paper/thesis writing etc. The book is also a source of different aspects of research methodology in plant science dealt with in a comprehensive manner tailored to the needs of postgraduate students/research scholars for easy understanding. The book is profusely illustrated. The different chapters described in the book include: Introduction, Microscopy, Plant micro-technique, Smear/Sqush technique, Plant tissue culture, Herbarium technique, Hydrogen ion concentration (pH), Centrifugation, Chromatography, Electrophoresis, Colorimetry, Spectro-photometry, Radio-isotopes in biology and Computers and their application in plant sciences. Chapters on Biostatistics, Biophysics and Bioinformatics have also been included to help the student in the statistical analysis of the results, physical principles involved in the operation of different instruments and basics of bioinformatics. We sincerely hope that this book helps to fill up the lacuna and provides what all that is needed about the research methods required for a scholar/student in plant sciences to pursue their higher studies.
The book "Plant Science" consists of 12 chapters divided into three sections authored by many researchers from different parts of the Globe. Section-I: Plant and Environment, describes the relationship between plants and environment, particularly enumerating species-environment relationship and response of plants to different environmental stress conditions. Section-II: Plant-Microbe relation, embodies broadly on both positive and negative aspects of microbes on plants. Section-III: Plant Biotechnology, shed light on current biotechnological research to develop modern technology for producing biologicals and also increasing plant immunity in present environmental conditions. The book "Plant Science" will be helpful to a wide group peoples; readers, scientists, researchers and allied professionals. We recommend it to you; enjoy reading it, save the plant and save life!
Introduction Plant Science, is one in a series of Just The Facts (JTF) textbooks created by the National Agricultural Institute for secondary and postsecondary programs in agriculture, food and natural resources (AFNR). This is a bold, new approach to textbooks. The textbook presents the essential knowledge of introductory plant science in outline format. This essential knowledge is supported by a main concept, learning objectives and key terms at the beginning of each section references and a short assessment at the end of each section. Content of the book is further enhanced for student learning by connecting with complementary PowerPoint presentations and websites through QR codes (scanned by smart phones or tablets) or URLs. The textbook is available in print and electronic formats.
The present book, entitled "Plant Sciences - A Treatise", is an attempt for providing agricultural graduates and post-graduates with sufficient supplemental information for competitive examinations such as JRF, SRF and ICAR-ASRB NET. The basic purpose of this book is to assist the students to develop a thorough understanding of the subjects of plant sciences viz., genetics and plant breeding, biotechnology, seed science and technology, and plant pathology and agricultural microbiology. To accomplish the above-mentioned objectives, an attempt was made to present the subjects in elucidated manner as per the requirements of students of the agricultural universities. For convenience, the book is furnished in various sections. The book deals with the fundamental facts and landmarks in the field of plant sciences accompanied by short introductions on various cell organelles and their functions, cell division, Mendelian genetics, cytogenetics, plant breeding methods, breeding of field crops, seed science and molecular genetics aspects. Plant pathology dealing with various crop diseases, their casual organisms, epidemiology, diagnosis and detection and management of plant diseases were dealt. The basics of agricultural microbiology were also covered briefly keeping JRF and other competitive examinations in view. Scientists and their contributions have been thoroughly covered in various sections of plant sciences. We hope this book caters the need of the agricultural students preparing for various examinations, and we wish the students utilize this book for their success. We are thankful to our teachers for their moral support in bringing out this book. Your valuable comments and suggestions are most welcome for improving this book further.
Plant Science: Growth, Development, and Utilization of Cultivated Plants, Fifth Edition, is an outstanding resource for anyone with an interest in how plants are grown and utilized for maintaining and adding enjoyment to human life. The text starts with the fundamentals of botany, plant physiology, and environmental factors affecting plant growth, while later sections integrate those topics into strategies of producing plants for human use as food, fiber, and recreation. The concept of sustainability and sustainable methods of growing plants runs throughout the text. Whether you are familiar or unfamiliar with plant science, this book will give you a firm understanding of concepts and terminology related to the growing of plants.
Forensic botany is the application of plant science to the resolution of legal questions. A plant’s anatomy and its ecological requirements are in some cases species specific and require taxonomic verification; correct interpretation of botanical evidence can give vital information about a crime scene or a suspect or victim. The use of botanical evidence in legal investigations in North America is relatively recent. The first botanical testimony to be heard in a North American court concerned the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh’s baby boy and the conviction of Bruno Hauptmann in 1935. Today, forensic botany encompasses numerous subdisciplines of plant science, such as plant anatomy, taxonomy, ecology, palynology, and diatomology, and interfaces with other disciplines, e.g., molecular biology, limnology and oceanography. Forensic Plant Science presents chapters on plant science evidence, plant anatomy, plant taxonomic evidence, plant ecology, case studies for all of the above, as well as the educational pathways for the future of forensic plant science. Provides techniques, collection methods, and analysis of digested plant materials Shows how to identify plants of use for crime scene and associated evidence in criminal cases The book’s companion website: http://booksite.elsevier.com/9780128014752, will host a microscopic atlas of common food plants.
Written by some of the most respected innovators in the field, this comprehensive text takes an in-depth look at the environmental, cultural and social factors that influence how plants are grown and used worldwide. The newest edition cites the most recent statistics, production methods and issues concerning the production and utilization of plants. It offers several web-based resources including a free companion website with practice questions andonline crop fact sheets that give information at a local level. Along with information on climate and environment, it also explores plants’ tremendous economic impact in both developed and developing nations. Introduces the basics of plant science including the ecosystem; climate; managing soil, water and fertility; and pest management. Examines plant structure, chemistry, growth and development; genetics and biodiversity and their relationship to crop growing and utilization systems. Covers multiple crop types and growth settings including nursery, landscape and greenhouse. Also discusses how crops are preserved, transported and marketed. For anyone interested in how plants are cultivated and utilized.
