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

By Susheng Gan

The clinical and fiscal value of plant senescence implies that a lot attempt has been made to appreciate the tactics concerned and to plot technique of manipulating them agriculturally. up to now few years there was substantial development during this regard, specially within the molecular, genetic and genomic points. Senescence has an incredible effect on agriculture. for instance, leaf senescence limits crop yield and biomass creation, and contributes considerably to postharvest loss in vegetable and decorative plants in the course of transportation, garage and on cabinets. furthermore, proteins, antioxidants and different dietary compounds are degraded in the course of senescence. Senescing tissues additionally turn into extra at risk of pathogen an infection, and a few of the pathogens might produce pollutants, rendering meals detrimental. Mitotic senescence can also confirm sizes of leaves, culmination and full vegetation.

This quantity summarizes contemporary progresses within the body structure, biochemistry, mobilephone 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 crops (a much less well-studied area), the publication specializes in post-mitotic senescence, and contains chapters addressing the senescence of leaves, vegetation and end result. Later chapters learn the advance of assorted new biotechnologies for manipulating the senescence procedures of fruit and leaves, a few of that are drawing close commercialization. The ebook is directed at researchers and pros in plant molecular genetics, body structure and biochemistry.
