New discoveries about the effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS) on plants have turned ROS from being considered a bane into a boon, because their roles have been discovered in many plant developmental processes as signaling molecules. This comprehensive book teaches about the role of ROS metabolism in plants and how they affect various developmental processes. It also discusses in detail the advancements made in understanding the ROS signaling.
Reactive Oxygen Species in Plants: Boon Or Bane – Revisiting the Role of ROS begins by presenting the basic introduction to ROS and deciphers the detailed knowledge in ROS research. It then examines the broad range of ROS signaling mechanisms as well as how they may be beneficial for plants and human beings. This book also describes both the bane and boon aspects of ROS with their impact on plants, and how the recent revelations have compelled us to rethink ROS turning from stressors to plant regulators.
- Compiles, for the first time, the wholesome knowledge in ROS research and their cellular signaling
- Includes new discoveries and in–depth discussions about the advancements made in the field
- Discusses reactive oxygen species which are involved in a broad range of biological processes
Reactive Oxygen Species in Plants: Boon Or Bane – Revisiting the Role of ROS will help scientists to utilize the functions of ROS signaling for plants and also enable readers to gain a deeper knowledge of ROS research and signaling. It is highly recommended for researchers, scientists, and academicians in plant science as well as for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students.
