Plant Biochemistry, Sixth Edition examines the molecular mechanisms of photosynthesis and highlights and expands this view to all facets facilitating plant life. It delivers the fundamental knowledge of plant biochemistry and explains the biological processes of life, including growth, development, senescence, and interactions between organisms and the environment, with chemical reactions. This book is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in plant physiology, plant pathology, plant cell biology, and other plant sciences, researchers in industries actively involved in agribusiness, other biotechnology enterprises, and researchers in agronomy, agriculture, plant development and related areas.

Covering a broad spectrum of topics in plant biochemistry, this book explores photosynthesis, energy metabolism, carbohydrate synthesis, photorespiration, starch biosynthesis and degradation, sulfate assimilation and nitrogen and nitrate assimilation and biosynthesis of plant proteins. The new edition delineates areas of latest and future research and includes a new and cutting-edge chapter on chlorophyll degradation.
