Modern Research in Botany

This book publishes innovative and significant research in all areas of Plant Biology e.g., Biodiversity, Structure, Function, Development, Genetics, Evolution, Reproduction, Systematics, all levels of Organization (Molecular to Ecosystem), and all Plant groups and Allied organisms (Cyanobacteria, Algae, Fungi, and Lichens). Articles are also invited on fundamental processes or mechanisms including those underpinning the improvement of plants for the sustainable production of food, fuel and renewable materials. Scopes also focus on Growth and development (integration of internal and external cues determining development and architecture; reproductive biology), Cell biology (molecular and vesicular trafficking; cell-to-cell communication; cytoskeleton; cell division; differentiation and death), Metabolism (photosynthesis; carbon uptake and assimilation; resource allocation; nutrition), Plant-environment interactions (global change; biotic and abiotic stress; symbioses; plant–rhizoflora interactions; mineral nutrition) and Crop molecular genetics (trait and gene characterization; molecular analysis; metabolic processes).
