A thoroughly comprehensive guide…
Upadhyay’s revealing latest provides an informative look at the necessity of the study of plants in changing environments. Upadhyay shares how various stress situations: exposure to chemical agents, radiation, and heavy metal among others affect the growth of the plants, describes the effects of environmental pollution, and weighs the pros and cons of flash-flooding, waterlogging, and drought. He concisely yet comprehensively explains the significance of the identification of stress-tolerant genes for the maintenance and streamlining of high crop yields. The epigraph at the beginning of each chapter adds heft to the text’s implicit message. Though the tone can be highly academic, the book serves as a comprehensive source for those interested in pursuing environmental science to an advanced stage. With its research-oriented approach and accessible language, this classroom-oriented book adds up to a solid academic guide. Early-career scientists and research scholars will be rewarded.
