Enlightening and Instructive,” The Secret of Plants in the environment” by Rishikesh Upadhyay sets itself up as a perfect guide for better understanding of the challenges faced by plants in the biosphere.
We all are well acquainted with various types of plants in our surroundings but are we truly aware of the harmful or stressful factors that a plant gets exposed to?
At the crux, the plot inscribes some eye opening facts about plants. Plants are sessile organisms that are unable to move but face the challenge of ever-changing or adverse environments. The study of the development of environmental changes in tolerant plants is fundamental for the maintenance and streamlining of high crop yields and plant adaptation in natural environments. The identification of genes that lead to changes or stress tolerance is urgently needed for the growth and development of plants in their natural environment.
Further exploration reveals that the author is a connoisseur of Botany. He addresses environmental concerns and presents scientific data, applied information about the different types of stress situations and plant adaptation to changing environments, including the positive and negative effects of stress on the growth of crops, the beginning stages of plant life cycles, and plant output and seeks to discuss the impact of environmental changes or stress on plant life, environmental stress physiology, and adaptation mechanisms. It also highlights the impact of environmental stresses on plants and crops under changing environments and gives a comprehensive overview of how plants respond to such environments.
Early-career scientists, Students of Bachelor of Science, Masters of Science, research scholars or any other professionals engaged in pursuing environmental science to an advanced stage, teaching and research on environmental-related subjects are encouraged to read this book thoroughly so that they can discover the extraordinary diversity of the plant world as it deals with some important aspects of environmental change or stress as the main issue affecting the survival of plants at the early stages of their life cycle.
The author goes beyond the basics to explain his readers everything they might want to know about plants which embraces plant’s response to radiation, their adaption to biotic components, drought and heat adaption in plants, influence of magnetic field and many more.
Rishikesh Upadhyay’s comprehensive writing style packed with sumptuous photos and crystal clear illustration represents an investment in time that returns dividend of wonder for his readers.
The title and the cover of the book are completely apt to the storyline.
