Genetic and Natural Resources Towards Food, Energy and Environment

R K Behl (Editor) S. Khatodia (Editor) Ors. (Editor)

Sustainable agriculture practices aimed to provide food security to the growing world's population by increasing agricultural productivity with plant genetic and natural resource management for the future generations. New developments have opened new opportunities to develop technologies that can lead to high productivity without adverse impact on the natural resources base. As part of efforts to attain food security across the globe, experts have suggested the application of biotechnologies besides traditional crop improvement techniques to boost food production. Advances in understanding plant biology, novel genetic resources, genome modification and omics technologies generates new solutions for food security and novel biomaterials production under changing environmental conditions to enhance ecological sustainability.

This book “Genetic and Natural Resources Towards Food, Energy and Environment” is based on peer reviewed selected papers presented and intended to be presented at 7th IFSDAA International Seminar 2016. The 25 papers contained in this book are resolved into five sections for systematic reading.
