About this book

This book explores the impact of soil water deficiency on various aspects of physiological processes in plants. The book explains the effects under soil water deficit condition such as lowering of plant water content, disturbance in carbon metabolism such in photosynthesis, photorespiration and respiration as well as effects of soil water deficit on nitrogen metabolism. The book also educates the readers about, mineral nutrition under soil water deficit condition and roles of different nutrient to overcome water deficit. Changes in growth and development pattern of plant under soil water deficit condition and effects on growth and development are elaborated. This book is of interest to teachers, researchers, scientists in botany and agriculture. Also the book serves as additional reading material for undergraduate and graduate students of agriculture, forestry, ecology, soil science, and environmental sciences. National and international agricultural scientists, policy makers will also find this to be a useful read.
The in depth description of the major physiological issues in plants under soil water deficit that are presented in this book will help breeders tailoring crops for desirable physiological survival traits in the face of increasing soil water deficit. This book is an impactful addition to the library of any faculty members, researchers, agricultural policy planner, post graduate or student studying in plant physiology, biochemistry, microbiology and other subjects related to crop husbandry.

 

About the authors

Dr. A. Bhattacharya, Principal Scientist (Retired), Indian Institute of Pulses Research, Kanpur, India. The author earned his M.Sc. degree in Botany (with specialization in Plant Physiology) from Allhabad University, Allahabad, India and his PhD Degree in Plant Physiology from Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, India. He is now retired from his role as Principal Scientist at the Indian Institute of Pulses Research, Kanpur, India, where he served over 40 years actively engaging in laboratory studies and conducting field experiments of pulses (Grain Legumes). During his service tenure the author also performed the duties of Principal Investigators (Plant Physiology) for All India Pulse Improvement Programme and looking after the field experiments of different pulses (e.g., green gram, black gram, lentil, field pea, french bean, and pigeonpea.
