ABOUT THE BOOK: This book has been written to serve the UG and PG level students of Botany in India and abroad. The book covers almost all concerned areas of biochemistry, plant physiology, ecology, and phytogeography. In that sense, it will also serve equally well to the students of biochemistry and biotechnology. The specialty of the book is it's in-depth though lucid and concise treatment of each and every topic of the concerned subject. Some of the important aspects have been discussed in boxes wherever required and it is expected that the book will be popular among NET, GATE, and UPSC aspirants as well. The second volume of this book is awaited and will cover subject areas like genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, plant biotechnology, biometry, economic botany and pharmacognosy, paleobotany, and palynology. Some key information required in problem solving and practicals has been provided in Appendices at the end of each volume.
