Plant physiology is a subdiscipline of botany concerned with the function, or physiology, of plants. Closely related fields include plant morphology (structure of plants), plant ecology (interactions with the environment), phytochemistry (biochemistry of plants), cell biology, and molecular biology. Fundamental processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, plant nutrition, plant hormone functions, tropisms, nastic movements, photoperiodism, photomorphogenesis, circadian rhythms, environmental stress physiology, seed germination, dormancy and stomata function and transpiration are studied. This book presents the latest research in the field from around the world.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope and importance:
The Laboratory of Plant Physiology of Wageningen University aims to contribute to the understanding of how plants function. We are particularly interested in how plants respond to changes in their sometimes hostile environment and how they in turn effect this environment to their benefit. Important subjects we study are how plants cope with environmental stresses and how they have adapted to the co-existence with other organisms. They study the effect of environmental factors on partitioning of metabolites between different organs and the production of secondary metabolites involved in plant-insect interactions. Other examples are the regulation of quality control in protein processing during seed filling and the resource availability during germination and growth of the seedling.
Genetics, natural variation, the analysis of plant hormones and other signaling molecules, and omics technologies such as transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics are essential expertises used in our research. We collaborate closely with the Laboratories of Genetics in our research on natural variation; Plant Cell Biology in our research on seed physiology; Entomology in our research on plant-insect interaction; Plant Research International in our research on metabolomics, glycoproteomics, seed physiology and metabolic engineering of secondary metabolism.
With more than 11,000 articles, researchers affiliated with German universities and institutes published almost twice as many articles as their peers in England, France and Spain. All four countries held their positions when compared to the plant sciences ranking from 2007.
The biggest winners are Italy and Poland, gaining two spots, the Czech Republic and Portugal climbing three spots, and Turkey is now seven spots closer to the top.
When it comes to the citations per article ratio, the UK clearly triumphs over the rest of Europe, with England achieving on average 17.6 citations per article and Scotland 16.9. Speaking of metabolic pathways, plant metabolism is central to the research of quite a few top 30 plant scientists, like AlisdairFernie, who specialises in metabolite profiling; Joachim Kopka, who develops in silico models for plant root primary metabolism and Thomas Moritz who directs the Swedish Metabolomics Centre and is interested in the metabolic variations occurring in response to hormonal and photoperiodic changes. Another important line of research deals with crops. Jonathan Jones, expert of plant immunity and author of our most-cited paper, studies how plants, like potato, defend themselves against pathogens and parasites.
Two other top 30 researchers, Fangjie Zhao and Steve McGrath work at Rothamsted Research, “the longest running agricultural research station in the world”. McGrath is interested in soil-plant systems, while Zhao deciphers the modes of action of a group of plant-specific water channels, the Nodulin-26 like Intrinsic Protein group, to, ultimately, decrease toxic accumulation of arsenic in rice.ast but not least, there are quite a number of plant ecologists – e.g. Antoine Guisan ,JosepPenuelas, Nina Buchmann) and Petr Pyšek) – who want to understand how plants cope with the climate change and the causes and effects of alien plant invasions.
