Photosynthesis is one of the
most important reactions on Earth. It is a scientific field that is the topic of
many research groups. This book is aimed at providing the fundamental aspects of
photosynthesis, and the results collected from different research groups.
The objective of this note is to provide
a knowledge of basic botany, teach specific information about economically
important plants, and instill skills in critically researching a topic on an
economically important plant. Topics covered includes: plant morphology and
taxonomy, Plant anatomy and physiology, Plant anatomy, Vegetable plants,
Flowering plants, Spices, Herbs; Essential oils, fragrances, perfumes, Genetics;
plant breeding, cultivars, Cereal grains, Alcoholic beverages, Gordon Biersch
Brewery, Fiber plants,Medicinal plants.
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.
Insectivorous Plants is a book by British
naturalist and evolutionary theory pioneer Charles Darwin. The book chronicles
Darwin's experiments with various carnivorous plants, in which he carefully
studied their feeding mechanisms. Darwin tried several methods to stimulate the
plants into activating their trap mechanisms, including feeding them meat and
glass, blowing on them and prodding them with hair.
This book, explains the synthesis of information
for developing strategies to combat plant stress. The information covered in
this book would bridge the much-researched area of stress in plants with the
much-needed information for evolving climate-ready crop cultivars to ensure food
security in the future.

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,

Greenhouses and Organic Gardening.
This book is
the result of several years 1 experience of the authors with the Intermediate
classes. A lot of time is usually wasted in giving instructions and notes to the
students as to the procedure of the day's work. The authors feel that this
humble attempt at systematizing the practical work of Intermediate classes, will
go a long way to remove this difficulty.
This note covers the following topics: Gymnospermae, Angiospermae,
Monocots, Dicots, Plant Life Cycles, Perennials, External Plant Parts, Stems,
Types of plants and their stem, Leaves, Types of leaves, Leaf venation, Leaf
base shapes, Flower Structure, Fruit, Types of fruit, Seeds, Germination.
Gleaning edible plants from herbals, botanies, travel books, cultural
histories, and experiments in scientific farming, Edward Lewis Sturtevant
(1842-1898) complied notes for the largest and most accurate work on edible
plants, cultigents, and secondary food sources ever written. 2,897 species with
comments from over 560 ancient and modern sources virtually cover the entire
field. The range is from the oldest known foods, the mallow and asphodel,
through newcomers like the tomato and celery, to wild foods which become
important under certain circumstances.
