Physiology of Plants and Their Cells is a 20-chapter book introducing the field of plant physiology. Plant physiology is generally a study of the living activity of the plant. This book begins by elucidating the value of plants to man, and describing the plant cells including its classification, structure, and nutrition. Subsequent chapters explain the role of water, minerals, and photosynthesis in plant physiology. Other topics on plants underlined in this book include energy storage, utilization, and loss; amino acid synthesis; metabolism; proteins; enzymes; phytochemistry; membranes; intercellular communication; growth; longevity; senescence; and death. Lastly, the relevance of plant physiology to contemporary problems facing mankind is explained. This book will be useful as a general reference for teachers and scientists interested in certain aspects of the field, as well as for students of biology and agriculture.
