About this book

Plant physiology is a subdiscipline of botany concerned with the function, or physiology, of plants. Fundamental processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, plant nutrition, plant hormone functions, tropisms, nastic movements, photoperiodism, photomorphogenesis, circadian rhythms, environmental stress physiology, seed germination, dormancy and stomata function and transpiration, both part of plant water relations, are studied by plant physiologists.

This book explores the recent developments in plant physiology with regard to the demands of students and teachers in the field. Topics like metabolism, Photosynthesis, respiration, nutrition, water balance, plant growth, movements, resistance against unfavourable abiotic and biotic effects etc., are discussed.
