Summary:
This book initially discusses the significance of anatomy in modern plant science and then provides an outline of the basic anatomical structures of angiosperms to give readers a basic idea about plant anatomy (section 1; chapters 1-4). In the second section (chapters 5-9), the structural anatomy of major crop plants is described in detail to delineate the significance of variations in the anatomical features under  Read more...

   schema:description "This book initially discusses the significance of anatomy in modern plant science and then provides an outline of the basic anatomical structures of angiosperms to give readers a basic idea about plant anatomy (section 1; chapters 1-4). In the second section (chapters 5-9), the structural anatomy of major crop plants is described in detail to delineate the significance of variations in the anatomical features under different environments. These are followed by two sections, one emphasizing the role of anatomy in the adaptation of crop plants (section 3; chapters 10-11) and the other (section 4; chapters 12-14) on signifying the impact of the variations in structural anatomy on crop productivity, both of which are very important for increasing agricultural productivity. This book provides a reference material for class study and guidance, as well as a comprehensive text for workers in fields of agricultural science and applied botany, and for teachers and students in other fields of crop ecology and botany."@en ;
