Abstract and Indexing

The Advances in Plant Physiology, has been edited for holistic development of the science of agriculture and crop production under distinctly changing environment with worthy contributions from exemplary scientists of eminence in unambiguous fields and remarkably fulfilling the exact themes of the volume focusing upon Strategic Developments for Crop Tolerance & Sustainability for making scrupulous research especially under changing climate. Promisingly, 18 thought provoking reviews elevate the status of the Volume 16 with extra dimension, as distributed in seven suitable major sections of Ultra Techniques in Plant Physiology; Abiotic Stresses - Physiological and Molecular Implications; Microbial Diversity and Molecular Strategies in Plant Nutrition; Proteomic Research; Medicinal Plants, In Vitro Regeneration and Natural Products; Plant Physiology in Sustainability of Agriculture; and Section of Comprehensive Review all written by experienced contributors of eminence in vital fields. This volume would be enormously a prolific reference book for acquiring advanced knowledge by faculties, post-graduate and Ph.D. scholars in response to the innovative courses in Plant Physiology, Plant Biochemistry, Plant Molecular Biology, Plant Biotechnology, Environmental Sciences, Plant Pathology, Microbiology, Soil Science & Agricultural Chemistry, Agronomy, Horticulture,  and Botany. The Volume 16 would be assisting in enthusing minds of young researchers for making significant research so much required in the present scenario.
