I feel immense pleasure in
presenting this book to the students. The field of plant physiology includes
the study of chemical and physiological processes within the plants. This book
of plant physiology lucidly explains the operational mechanisms of plants with
the help of illustrations. It focuses on the study of the internal activities
of plants including molecular interactions of photosynthesis, photoperiodism,
seed dormancy, plant hormones, plant stress and bioenergetics. The book with
its compilations and update literature and its lucid presentation will be
useful for students, teachers and others in the subject of plant physiology.
I wish to express my gratitude to my
teacher Prof. (Dr.) Vibha Khanna for her guidance and my colleagues. I am also
grateful to my husband Dr. Hemant Kumar for his valuable support.
