Cover for Heat response, senescence and reproductive development in plants.

Heat stress (HS)-induced reduction in crop productivity is likely to enhance because of the impending climate change. HS affects both vegetative and reproductive phase in plants leading to loss in yield. HS at the vegetative stage results in less biomass accumulation and at reproductive stage...

Cover for Polyamines in plants: biosynthesis from arginine, and metabolic, physiological and stress-response roles.

Biogenic amines affect a myriad of growth and developmental processes in all organisms, including plants. Therefore, there is continued interest in understanding the biosynthesis and functional roles of polyamines in regulating plant metabolism, physiology and development. The role of polyamines in ...

Cover for Crop leaf area.

In this chapter, a simple method is presented for predicting leaf area development under non-limiting water and nutrients, and in the absence of insects, diseases and weeds. Studies on the application of mathematical models in leaf area prediction in grain crops, such as soyabean and wheat, are...

Cover for A model for nitrogen-limited conditions.

This chapter focuses on the integration of submodels developed to simulate plant nitrogen (N) budget and soil N balance as well as a submodel to account for N effect on leaf area development and senescence into the model of water-limited conditions to simulate crop growth and yield as influenced by ...

Cover for Growing up, getting old and dying.

This chapter focuses on the plant growth and development from seedling establishment through death, the influence of abiotic factors (temperature and light) on these life cycle events and the allocation of resources for plant growth, maintenance and reproduction. The natural process of plant death...
