Download Annual Plant Reviews, Senescence Processes in Plants: Volume by Susheng Gan PDF

By Susheng Gan

The clinical and monetary value of plant senescence signifies that a lot attempt has been made to appreciate the methods concerned and to plot technique of manipulating them agriculturally. in the past few years there was huge development during this regard, specifically within the molecular, genetic and genomic facets. Senescence has a massive effect on agriculture. for instance, leaf senescence limits crop yield and biomass construction, and contributes considerably to postharvest loss in vegetable and decorative plants in the course of transportation, garage and on cabinets. moreover, proteins, antioxidants and different dietary compounds are degraded in the course of senescence. Senescing tissues additionally develop into extra liable to pathogen an infection, and a few of the pathogens might produce pollutants, rendering foodstuff hazardous. Mitotic senescence can also confirm sizes of leaves, end result and entire crops.

This quantity summarizes contemporary progresses within the body structure, biochemistry, cellphone biology, molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, and biotechnology of plant senescence. starting with a bankruptcy on senescence-related terminology and our present wisdom of mitotic senescence in vegetation (a much less well-studied area), the ebook specializes in post-mitotic senescence, and contains chapters addressing the senescence of leaves, plant life and culmination. Later chapters study the advance of assorted new biotechnologies for manipulating the senescence methods of fruit and leaves, a few of that are coming near near commercialization. The booklet is directed at researchers and pros in plant molecular genetics, body structure and biochemistry.
