Alpha Science, 2004 - Science - 620 pages
Plant physiology being one of the most important disciplines of life science, the students/teachers need to be aware of the latest developments for better understanding of the subject. Keeping this in mind both the recent developments as well as basic concepts have been incorporated in this book. Divided into three sections: (i) Water and mineral relation of plants (ii) Metabolismtand (iii) Growth and developmental physiology of seven, ten and nine chapters respectively, each chapter deals with a particular topic followed by subjective and objective problems for practice and includes further readings. The subject index at the end of the book facilitates easy location of key wordsl specific terms. The text is presented in simple and logical style with profuse diagrams and illustrations and is so arranged as to maintain continuity. Differences between allied processes viz. Phosphorescence and Fluorescence, Absorption and Adsorption etc. are presented in tabular form so that these can be memorised easily. This book will serve as an up-to-date textbook of plant physiology for undergraduate and post-graduate students of Botany, Biochemistry and Agriculture and would also be of great help to students appearing at various competi tive examinations. Healthy criticism and suggestions for improvement of the book from my learned colleaguesl students would be welcomed.
