Kishan Gopal Ramawat's Desert Plants: Biology and Biotechnology PDF

By Kishan Gopal Ramawat

Deserts look very attention-grabbing in the course of our brief visits. notwithstanding, the lives of vegetation and animals are very dif?cult lower than the cruel weather conditions of excessive tempe- ture and scant water provide in deserts, occasionally linked to excessive concent- tions of salt. The editor of this ebook used to be born and taken up within the nice Indian barren region, and has spent a lot of his existence learning the expansion and metabolism of desolate tract vegetation. it's very fascinating on a funky summer time night to take a seat on the best of a sand dune listening purely to blowing air and not anything else. it's been my dream to organize a quantity on barren region crops encompassing a number of features of desolate tract plant biology. during this publication, i've got attempted to provide practical and invaluable elements of the plants assets of deserts in addition to scienti?c enter geared toward knowing and impr- ing the application of those crops. The scant plants of deserts helps animal lifestyles and gives many beneficial drugs, trees and gas wooden for people. for that reason, there are chapters dedicated to medicinal crops (Chap. 1), halophytes (Chaps. thirteen, 14), and fruit crops (Chaps. 17, 20). desolate tract vegetation have a distinct reproductive biology (Chaps. 9–11), well-adapted eco-physiological and anatomical charact- istics (Chap. 7), and specialized metabolism and survival talents. those crops are dif?cult to propagate and pose many difficulties to researchers constructing biote- nological methods for his or her amelioration (Chaps. 18–20).
