About this book

This book highlights the latest advances made in the niche area of Reactive Oxygen Species and Redox processes in plants. It offers a valuable guide for researchers and students alike, providing insights into sensing, detox scavenging, the role in oxidative deterioration, and signaling associated with redox-regulatory processes in plants. The book also dramatically demonstrates how these amazingly resourceful molecular species and radicals are poised at the core of a sophisticated network of signaling pathways, and act as vital regulators of plants’ cell physiology and cellular responses to the environment. 

The molecular language associated with ROS-mediated signal transduction, which produces modulations in gene expression that determine plants’ stress acclamatory performance, is also discussed. The book subsequently provides information on current trends in redox proteomics and genomics, which include efforts to gain a fuller understanding of these redox players’ role in cellular processes, and to further the application of this knowledge to technology and agriculture. Given its scope and format, the book offers a valuable asset for students of Plant Sciences, Agriculture, and Molecular Biology, as well as readers engaged in research on and teaching ROS Biology. 

About the authors

Dr Soumen Bhattacharjee, currently a Professor & Programme Coordinator at the UGC Centre for Advanced Studies, University of Burdwan, West Bengal, completed his Masters and PhD in Botany at the University of Burdwan. He began his teaching career at a Delhi University Constituent College in Bhutan in 1995. After serving almost two and half years, he joined West Bengal Education Service and worked mainly at the Post Graduate Department of Botany, Hooghly Mohsin College, West Bengal. In 2007, Dr Bhattacharjee joined Vivekanada Institute of Hill Agriculture in Almora, India. In 2013 he joined the University of Burdwan as a Professor. In the course of his teaching career, Dr Bhattacharjee has taught undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Burdwan, University of Kalyani and University of Delhi. Dr Bhattacharjee’s main research interests are in plant redox biology, particularly understanding the relationship between oxidative stress and plants’ growth and yield potential; the role of ROS signaling in stress acclimation; characterization of the redox-regulatory mechanism during germination of rice under abiotic stress; and understanding the physiological basis of antioxidant accumulation in underutilized medicinal plants. He has 90 publications (58 research papers in international peer reviewed journals, two edited books with Springer International, nine edited volumes and 21 articles in the proceedings of national & international conferences) to his credit.
