Book Description. This title includes a number of Open Access chapters. The field of plant physiology includes the study of all chemical and physical processes of plants, from the molecular-level interactions of photosynthesis and the diffusion of water, minerals, and nutrients within the plant, to the larger-scale processes of plant growth, dormancy and reproduction. In recent years, molecular biology has infiltrated into all branches of botany. This is particularly true of plant physiology. This book attempts to provide an introduction to the metabolic and developmental physiology of higher plants from a molecular biological point of view. Starting from theBrand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Sir Francis Bacon published one of the first plant physiology experiments in in the book, Sylva Sylvarum. Bacon grew several terrestrial plants, including a rose, in water and concluded that soil was only needed to keep the plant upright. Plant physiology encompasses the study of plant form and function. As plants evolved to life on land they were required to evolve methods to survive with the separation of CO 2 and water. Plant physiology looks at the different parts of plants and how they work, either individually or collectively.
This latest edition of The Physiology of Flowering Plants has been completely updated to cover the explosion of interest in plant biology. A whole-plant approach has been used to produce an integrated view of plant function, covering both the fundamentals of whole plant physiology and the latest developments in molecular biology. Sperry, J. S. () Limitations on stem water transport and their consequences. In Plant Stems: Physiology and Functional Morphology, B. L. Gartner, ed. Academic Press, San Diego, pp. – Tyree, M. T., and Sperry, J. S. () Do woody plants operate near the point of catastrophic xylem dysfunction caused by water stress? MCQ on Plant Physiology – Plant Water Relations. 1. The water readily available to plants for absorption by roots is a) Gravitational water b) Capillary water c) Rain water d) Hygroscopic water. 2. The water potential of pure water at atmospheric pressure is a) bar b) + bar c) Zero bar d) One bar. 3. Loss of water from the stomata of. mineral nutrition of plants, photosynthesis, transport, respiration and ultimately plant growth and development are described in molecular terms but in the context of cellular activities and even at organism level. Wherever appropriate, the relation of the physiological processes to environment is also discussed. PLANT PHYSIOLOGY Chapter 11File Size: 1MB.
Prelude to Plant Form and Physiology While individual plant species are unique, all share a common structure: a plant body consisting of stems, roots, and leaves. They all transport water, minerals, and sugars produced through photosynthesis through the plant body in a similar manner. This textbook provides an excellent balance of traditional and modern aspects of plant physiology in simple language and focuses on fundamentals of plant physiology for undergraduate and advanced undergraduate students. It emphasizes on the physiological, biochemical and molecular study of plants. Book Detail: Crop Physiology Language: English Pages: Author: TNAU Price: Free LECTURE SCHEDULE Introduction – Importance of crop physiology in agriculture. Role and significance of water – diffusion, imbibition, osmosis and its significance, plasmolysis. Definition – field capacity, water holding capacity of soil and permanent wilting point. Absorption of water – mode of water. Scientists change the way plants are classified from time to time, when they discover new types of plants or learn new things about plants. The two main groups are vascular plants (plants that use stems and veins to transport food and water), and non-vascular plants (plants with no roots, stems, or leaves).File Size: KB.

Aquaporins are highly regulated water channels that contribute to the control of water movement at the cell, tissue, and organ levels and, hence, to the overall plant water relations in. In this comprehensive and stimulating text and reference, the authors have succeeded in combining experimental data with current hypotheses and theories to explain the complex Water in the physiology of plants book functions of plants.
For every student, teacher and researcher in the plant sciences it offers a solid basis for an in-depth understanding of the entire subject area, underpinning up-to-date research in 5/5(1). Plant Physiology: A Treatise, Volume IX: Water and Solutes in Plants explores problems associated with water and solutes of plants as they grow.
This book considers water relations of plant cells, along with transpiration and water balance, the physiology of stomata, ion uptake by roots from the soil, and salt relations of plants. The first chapters discuss metabolism ie.
photosynthesis, respiration, mineral Water in the physiology of plants book heterotrophic nutrition, and water regime of plants. What follows is a discussion of the physiology of plant growth, development and movements, and finally resistance of Book Edition: 1.
Additional Physical Format: Online version: Crafts, Alden Springer, Water in the physiology of plants book in the physiology of plants. Waltham, Mass., Chronica Botanica Co., This book provides a good broad overview of plant physiology using crop plants as examples. It would be useful for the study of non-crop plants as well.
The book is aimed at a general science reader. One does not need to be a plant biology specialist. However the reader will need a reasonable background in chemistry and biology. This completely revised classic book is an up-to-date synthesis of the intensive research devoted to woody plants published in the second edition, with additional important aspects from the authors' previous book, Growth Control in Woody Plants.
Intended primarily as a reference for researchers, the interdisciplinary nature of the book makes it. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Crafts, Alden Springer, Water in the physiology of plants.
New York: Ronald Press Co., © (OCoLC) This book describes the mechanisms of nutrient taken up by plants at the biochemical and molecular level. This is a new concept developed over the past 30 years, primarily due to use of modern Author: Misganaw Meragiaw.
Water Stress and Crop Plants: A Sustainable Approach presents an up-to-date in-depth coverage of drought and flooding stress in plants, including the types, causes and consequences on plant growth and development. It discusses the physiobiochemical, molecular and omic approaches, and responses of crop plants towards water stress.
This book provides up-to-date knowledge of root biology. Most plants have roots, which anchor the plant in the soil and physically support the above-ground parts of the plant.
In addition, roots absorb water and nutrients from the soil and transport this to the shoot. Roots grow by cell proliferation in the meristem in the root tip.
The cells differentiate into the epidermis, cortex, and stele Author: Takuji Ohyama. Lastly, Unit V addresses the large number of secondary metabolites produced by plants that are medicinally important for mankind and their applications in biotechnology and agriculture.
Each topic is supported by illustrations, tables and information boxes, and a glossary of important terms in plant physiology is provided at the end.

In turn, plants exert major controls on the water and carbon cycles of the world. Roughly 32 × 10 15 kg year −1 of water is drawn by land plants and transpired to the atmosphere, while terrestrial photosynthesis annually fixes about × 10 15 g of carbon (Schimel et al., ).
This book examines the physiology of plants under stress and discusses the relationship between plant structure, development and growth and environmental variables (stresses) such as too much or too little water, light, heat or by: The strip of young endodermal cells of the root possess suberised thickening on lateral and radial walls.
