Description

Reproductive biology of plants is an emerging frontier area in plant sciences. Recent advances and research in this field are laying foundations for major conservation programmes initiated for protection of plant species all over the world. Reproductive mechanisms that operate in plants account for the diversity and evolution of many important families. The present volume is a compilation of eighteen chapters written by eminent scientists who work on various aspects of plant reproduction, conservation of species, and molecular characterization of reproductive traits. It gives updated literature on the topics of academic and research interest.
