Om boka

This book comprehensively introduces all aspects of the physiology, stress responses and tolerance to abiotic stresses of the Fabaceae plants. Different plant families have been providing food, fodder, fuel, medicine and other basic needs for the human and animal since the ancient time. Among the plant families Fabaceae have special importance for their agri-horticultural importance and multifarious uses apart from the basic needs. Interest in the response of Fabaceae plants toward abiotic stresses is growing considering the economic importance and the special adaptive mechanisms. Recent advances and developments in molecular and biotechnological tools has contributed to ease and wider this mission. This book provides up-to-date findings that will be of greater use for the students and researchers, particularly Plant Physiologists, Environmental Scientists, Biotechnologists, Botanists, Food Scientists and Agronomists, to get the information on the recent advances on this plant family in regard to physiology and stress tolerance.

Om forfatteren

Dr. Mirza Hasanuzzaman is a Professor of Agronomy at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. He received his PhD on 'Plant Stress Physiology and Antioxidant Metabolism' from the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Ehime University, Japan with Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship. Later, he completed his postdoctoral research in Center of Molecular Biosciences (COMB), University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, Japan with 'Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS)' postdoctoral fellowship. Subsequently, he joined as Adjunct Senior Researcher at the University of Tasmania with Australian Government's Endeavour Research Fellowship. Prof. Hasanuzzaman has been devoting himself in research in the field of Crop Science, especially focused on Environmental Stress Physiology since 2004. Prof. Hasanuzzaman published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals and books. He has edited 12 books and written 35 book chapters on important aspects of plant physiology, plant stress responses, and environmental problems in relation to plant species. These books were published by the internationally renowned publishers. Prof. Hasanuzzaman is a research supervisor of undergraduate and graduate students and supervised 20 M.S. students so far. He is Editor and Reviewer of more than 50 peer reviewed international journals and recipient of 'Publons Global Peer Review Award 2017, 2018 and 2019'. Prof. Hasanuzzaman is active member of about 40 professional societies and acting as Publication Secretary of Bangladesh Society of Agronomy. He has been honored by different authorities due to his outstanding performance in different fields like research and education. He received the World Academy of Science (TWAS) Young Scientist Award 2014. He attended and presented 25 papers and posters in national and international conferences in different countries (USA, UK, Germany, Australia, Japan, Austria, Sweden, Russia, etc.).
Dr. Susana Araujo graduated in Applied Plant Biology (2000) at the Faculdade de Ciencias da Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal. In 2007, she obtained her PhD degree in Biology at the Instituto de Tecnologia Quimica e Biologica Antonio Xavier da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (ITQB NOVA), Portugal. During her PhD thesis, she developed Medicago truncatula lines expressing stress-related genes and studied their response to water deficit. After a post-doctoral fellowship at ITQB NOVA, she moved to the Tropical Research Institute in Lisbon (2009-2014) to continue her research on legumes adaptation to water deficit. In 2015, she moved to the University of Pavia (UNIPV, Italy) as a Senior Researcher. Under the scope of the PRIMTECH project, she studied the molecular mechanisms behind seed germination and priming. This subject, among others, was further studied after returning to ITQB NOVA as Post-Doctoral Researcher (2016-2018). Presently, she is a Researcher at the Plant Cell Biotechnology Laboratory of ITQB NOVA, being an integrated member of the research unit "GREEN-IT - Bioresources for Sustainability". Her main research aims to uncover molecular and physiological mechanisms by which legume plants grow and respond to abiotic stresses. Recently, her research focused on Seed Biology, with running research on seed development and germination. One of her goals is to develop legumes able to cope and yield within the current Climate Change scenario. She has been delivering invited lectures and classes in these topics, while supervising several PhD, MSc and BSc students. She co-authored 42 manuscripts in peer-reviewed international journals, 11 book chapters, edited one book on seed technology and has contributed with several communication in international meetings. She is member of the International Legume Society (ILS) and Portuguese Society of Plant Physiology. Since 2015, she is part of the Editorial Board of Frontiers in Plant Science, as Associate Editor of the Plant Breeding section, while being referee for several international scientific journals.

Dr. Sarvajeet Singh Gill has completed his PhD at the age of 28 years from AMU, Aligarh and postdoctoral studies from International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB). He is working as Assistant Professor of Agriculture Biotechnology at Centre for Biotechnology, Maharshi Dayanand University. Dr. Gill in collaboration with Dr. Narendra Tuteja (Post Doctoral Guide) conferred the novel function of DNA helicase (PDH45) in stress tolerance. He h^100 papers in the journals of international repute, edited >28 books and has been serving as an editorial board member in the journals of International repute. Dr. Gill has been conferred with 2017-Research Excellence & Citation Award from Clarivate Analytics (Web of Science).
