Essential for students of both undergraduate and postgraduate classes, Modern Plant Physiology addresses new developments in tissue culture, stress physiology, and secondary metabolities. This detailed and comprehensive handbook, written by a renowned figure in botanical education, focuses on many essential concepts, including: the metabolisms of nitrogen, amino acids, protein, fat, and nucleic acid; photosynthesis; photorespiration; hormones; senescence, aging and abscission; photoperiodism; and the physiology of flowering. The text offers tabulated differences between allied processes such as Fluorescence and Phosphorescence, thus providing a clear conception and better understanding of the subject matter.
