About this book

This reference work provides a comprehensive review of cell and tissue differentiation and its role in the formation of specific secondary metabolites. Divided into five sections, this book covers the main cellular processes involved in the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites. Chapters from expert contributors offer specific case studies of cell and tissue differentiation, examines secondary metabolites in shoot and root cultures, and present new scientific insights and original technologies with applications in medicinal plants and in plant biotechnology.

Students, scholars and researchers with an interest in the fields of botany, agriculture, pharmacy, biotechnology and phytochemistry will find this book an important account. This book will also engage professionals working in plant-based industry.

About the authors

Professor Dr. Kishan G. Ramawat is Former Professor & Head of the Botany Department, M.L. Sukhadia University, Udaipur, India, and has a longstanding research experience. He received his Ph.D. in Plant Biotechnology in 1978 from the University of Jodhpur, India and afterwards joined the university as a faculty member. In 1991 he moved to the M.L.Sukhadia University in Udaipur as Associate Professor and became Professor in 2001. He served as the Head of the Department of Botany (2001-2004, 2010-2012), was in charge of the Department of Biotechnology (2003-2004), was a member of the task force on medicinal and aromatic plants of the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, New Delhi (2002-2005) and coordinated UGC-DRS and DST-FIST programmes (2002-2012). Prof. Ramawat had done his postdoctoral studies at the University of Tours, France from 1983-85, and later returned to Tours as visiting professor (1991). He also visited the University of Bordeaux 2, France, several times as visiting professor (1995, 1999, 2003, 2006, 2010), and in 2005 Poland in an academic exchange programme (2005). Prof. Ramawat has published more than 170 well cited peer reviewed papers and articles, and edited several books and reference works on topics such as the biotechnology of medicinal plants, secondary metabolites, bioactive molecules, herbal drugs, and many other topics. In his research group, Prof. Ramawat has supervised doctoral thesis of 25 students. He is an active member of several academic bodies, associations and editorial boards of journals.

Professor Dr. Halina M. Ekiert is the Chairperson of the Department of Pharmaceutical Botany, at the Jagiellonian University, Kraków (Poland), and has a strong background in plant biotechnology, phytochemistry, analysis of natural products and biological activity of plant metabolites. After receiving her Ph.D. in 1989 for the studies on metabolites in tissue culture of Ammimajus L., she became an Assistant Professor at the Collegium Medicum of the Jagiellonian University (1989-2004), gathered postdoctoral experience at Bonn University, Würzburg University and Marburg am Lahn university (Germany), and did also specialize in herbalism. In 2007 she received the Habilitatus Doctor title in Pharmacy at the Collegium Medicum, Jagiellonian University. Prof. Ekiert has also worked as consultant for plant biotechnology companies and German Institutes, and has published 80+ well cited peer reviewed papers and articles.

Dr. Shaily Goyal is currently a freelance scientific writer with research experience in plant biotechnology. After receiving her Ph. D. in 2008 from the Mohanlal Sukhadia University (India), she worked as research associate in the Laboratory of Biomolecular Technology, Department of Botany, M.L. Sukhadia University and also as a Teaching Assistant of biology, botany and biotechnology-related courses. Dr. Goyal has been collaborating with Prof. Ramawat since 2005, and has published several book chapters and also articles in peer reviewed journals. She did also co-author two textbooks for graduate and post graduate students.
