This lecture note focus on the
role of plants in this world and their interaction with other plants, insects,
herbivores, pathogens, fungi and humans. These interactions are based on the
plant primary metabolism with its cheap supply of sugar for bribes as well as on
secondary metabolites for bribes, defense and repulsion.
Plant Metabolism is designed
to focus on themes of current interest in plant metabolism and biochemistry.
Topics covered includes: Metabolomics, Membranes and Organelles, Nitrogen
Assimilation, Amino Acid Biosynthesis, Structural Lipids, Photosynthesis,
Carbohydrate Metabolism, Glycolysis, Terpenoids, Alkaloids, Phenylpropanoids,
Nitrogen Fixation, Phytohormones and Elicitors.
Botany is the scientific study of plants and plant-like organisms. It
helps us understand why plants are so vitally important to the world. There were
two main ideas author attempted to embed here are : one was to put as much
plant-related information as possible into an evolutionary context, and the
other was to explain complicated problems with simple words and metaphors.
Textbook of Botany is intended to introduce the student to the present state of
our knowledge of botanical science. Topics covered includes: General Botany,
Internal Morphology, Physiology, Special Botany and Cryptogams.
Author(s): Strasburger, Schenck, Noll, Fritz, Karsten, Lang, W. H.
This book covers the following
topics: Introduction to Horticulture and Plant Physiology, Basic Botany,
Plant Propagation, Soils and Fertilizers, Horticultural Equipment Management,
Plant Management, Backyard Composting, Pesticide Management and Safety, Basic
Entomology, Insect Management, Rodents, Birds, and Other Pests, Plant Disease
Diagnosis and Management, Weeds, Landscaping, Landscape Plants, Woody
Landscape Plants, Herbaceous Ornamentals, Principles of Vegetable Culture,
Vegetable Crop Recommendations, Fruit Trees, Small Fruits, Houseplants and Home
Greenhouses and Organic Gardening.
This book is designed to furnish classes
in our schools and colleges with a suitable text book of Structural and
Physiological Botany, as well as private students with a convenient introductory
manual, adapted to the present condition of the science.
In the chapters of this book, on the
identification of trees, the aim has been to bring before the student only such
characters and facts as shall help him to distinguish the tree readily during
all seasons of the year. Special stress is laid in each case on the most
striking peculiarities. Possible confusion with other trees of similar
appearance is prevented as far as possible through comparisons with trees of
like form or habit.
This structural work
has been supplemented by so much classification as will serve to make clear the
relationships of different groups, and the principles upon which the
classification is based, as well as enable the student to recognize the commoner
types of the different groups as they are met with. The aim of this book is not,
however, merely the identification of plants.
The purpose of this note is to to give the students a general idea
of the principles of the science, rather than a comprehensive survey of the
whole vegetable kingdom. In a short course of this nature it is impossible to
include examples of every group, and therefore those types have been selected
with which it is moat important that the student should become acquainted.
This note contains explanation of algae,
structure of alage and its classification. The contents of this documents are
Dichotomous Key to Freshwater Algae, Groups of Cyanobacteria & Algae,
Dinoflagellates, Euglenoids, Brown, Golden brown, and Yellow brown Algae
