Plant, Microbes and Biotechnology

Sampat Nehra (Editor)

During the last few decades, Plant Sciences have definitely made their presence felt as an important branch of science. The role of Plant Sciences becomes very important as it provides the basic information to botanists and biotechnologists to use in tailoring plants to desired traits. The present work-Plant, Microbes and Biotechnology-incorporates review and research articles on varied aspect of biotechnology and microbes in 22 chapters. Articles on nanobiotechnology, protease inhibitors in defence mechanism, biotisation of micropropagated plants; green revolution in forestry and blue-green algae as biofertiliser project their importance in the near future. Information on basic branches of plant sciences, namely, pollination biology; epidermal studies; study of agarophytes and phytoplankton have been provided covering the latest knowledge. Account related to ecological monitoring of the bioinoculant; phytochemical investigation of medicinal plants; ethnobotanical study, diseases caused by nematodes and their interaction with other organisms; use to AM fungi, etc. provide excellent information on the subject. This bok will prove to be a very useful reference book for botanists and biotechnologists under one cover covering varied facets of these branches. This book is a must for all science libraries catering to the requirements of post-graduate and doctoral students and teachers engaged in Plant Science studies.
