The present book is designed for B.Sc. (Gen.) and B.Sc. (Hons.) students of all Indian university. The book is amply illustrated with diagrams. Almost all important genera are discussed giving details of structure, anatomy, developmental stages of reproductive organs from different sections like Bryophytes, Pteridophytes and Gymnospersm. Paleobotany section deals with important fossil genera from Pteridophytes and Gymnospersm. Various comparisons of different genera are given in all sections. Experimental studies of Bryophytes, Pteridophytes and Gymnospersms are discussed from recent literature.
University Botany-I Is A Comprehensive Textbook For Students Of 1St Year B.Sc. Botany. The Book Is Written Strictly In Accordance With The Revised Common Core Syllabus Adopted By The Universities In Andhra Pradesh. Every Care Has Been Taken To Present The Subject In A Simple Language And In A Profusely Illustrated Manner For Better Understanding. The Book Is Divided Into Four Parts.Part I Deals With Structure, Reproduction, Life-History, Systematic Position Of The Algal Members That Are Needed To Be Studied By The Students Under Common Core Syllabus. Part Ii Deals With Structure, Reproduction, Life-History, Systematic Position Of Fungi Included In The Syllabus Bacteria, Viruses, Lichens Along With A Brief Account Of Plant Diseases And Their Control Also Have Been Discussed.Part Iii Deals With Structure, Reproduction, Life-History And Systematic Position Of The Bryophytes Included In The Syllabus.Part Iv Deals With Structure, Reproduction, Life-History, Systematic Position Of The Pteridophytes, Included In The Syllabus. Review Questions Based On University Examination Pattern Are Given At The End Of Each Chapter, For The Benefit Of The Students. With All These Features, This Book Would Serve As An Excellent Text For The Core Course Of Botany Of Andhra Pradesh And Other Indian Universities.
For the students of undergraduate and postgraduate students. All the diagrams have been made of several colours making these more attractive. As per the new format of question papers , three types of questions -Essay type, Short answer type and Objective type Questions have been added.
The Study Of Bryophytes Is No Longer Confined To Their Morphology, Anatomy, Life-History, And Phylogenetic Considerations. In Recent Years There Has Been An Increasing Emphasis On Investigations Concerning The Ultrastructure, Reproductive Biology, Ecology, Morphogenesis, Physiology, Biochemistry And Related Aspects Of Bryophytes. These Themes Have Also Rightfully Found Their Place In The Syllabi At All Levels In Most Universities All Over The Globe. However, The Writing Of Texts In This Area Has Lagged Behind. Since The Literature Is Scattered And At Times Not Easy To Reach, There Is An Urgent Need For A Book Which Deals With The Modern Topics Of Bryology. This Volume Is Intended To Fill This Gap. The Authors Have Tried To Make The Compilation Of The Literature As Up-To-Date As Possible, And The References Cited In The Text Have Been Listed At The End Of Each Chapter For Those Interested In More Details. Most Of The Illustrations Have Been Taken From Recent Research Publications And These Have Not Previously Been Included In Any Book As Far As We Aware. Summary Charts And Tables Are Provided At All Appropriate Places.
A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the morphology, systematics, ecology, and evolution of this fascinating group of plants.
"An illustrated glossary of terms that are used to describe mosses, liverworts, and hornworts. Written in informal prose, it's intended to be an everyday reference for not only bryology and botany students, but also gardeners and anybody who's interested in plants. The second edition has half again as many pages (over 330) and illustrations (nearly 1400) as the first edition did, and two-thirds of those illustrations are new. Over 530 species of bryophytes are illustrated. Also, an appendix explains how to photograph bryophytes without a camera." --NHBS Environment Bookstore.
Opens the door to the curious mind, inspiring students, from late undergraduates to post-doctoral researchers, to engage in bryological research.
A Textbook Of Botany Has Been Developed As A Multi-Volume Work To Meet The Needs Of Undergraduate Students. An Effort Has Also Been Made To Make It Useful To Honours And Postgraduate Students. First Published More Than Thirty Years Ago, The Current Editio
The interdisciplinary nature of limnology requires lucid and well-integrated coverage of biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, and resource management. Paul Weihe skillfully accomplishes this objective in his revision of Gerald Cole’s classic limnology text. This long-awaited revision introduces concepts in straightforward terms, replete with detailed examples, elegant illustrations, and up-to-date, well-researched documentation. Outstanding features of the fifth edition include: • A global outlook with examples from every continent • Discussions of the impact of environmental challenges (e.g., climate change, eutrophication, river regulation) with case studies of real-world examples • A chapter devoted to wetlands • A thorough examination of biogeochemistry, including recent anthropogenic alteration and a reconsidered understanding of stoichiometric relationships • Expanded treatment of hydrology, utilizing empirical approaches to discharge determination and effects of land-use changes • A reorganized presentation of biodiversity, explicitly correlating profiles of biota with community ecology and ecosystem function • Updated taxonomy with a description of the new metagenomic approach, nomenclature strictly adhering to the intergovernmental Integrated Taxonomic Information System
Symbiotic Fungi – Principles and Practice presents current protocols for the study of symbiotic fungi and their interactions with plant roots, such as techniques for analyzing nutrient transfer, ecological restoration, microbial communication, and mycorrhizal bioassays, AM inoculum procedures and mushroom technology. The protocols offer practical solutions for researchers and students involved in the study of symbiotic microorganisms. The volume will be of great use for basic research, biotechnological applications, and the development of commercial products.
