Natural Growth Inhibitors and Phytohormones in Plants
and Environment

by Valentine Kefeli and Maria Kalevitch

This book is dedicated to the study of inhibitors and phytohormones as well as its practical applications for achieving a more sustainable agriculture. It focuses on the functions of various groups of active molecules, their direct effect upon plant growth, but also implications for their impact upon the surrounding environment are explored.

The main idea of the book evolved for the need to determine a balance among natural growth inhibitors and phytohormones. This approach was pursued through a better understanding of their biochemical pathways, their effects on plants physiological functions, and their influence upon stress factors on plant ontogenesis. This informative book proposes a more logistic approach to the study of plant physiology, in which the plant-soil interactions are discussed, with a profound description of different allelochemicals and their effects on plants growth.

Contents:

1. System of growth and development regulation in the plant
2. Natural growth inhibitors and phytohormones under the control of the plant's genome
3. Natural inhibitors and phytohormones during leave's growth and development
4. Natural growth inhibitors and phytohormones in the process of cells and organs elongation
5.Phenolic inhibitors and abscisic acid during dormancy
6. Catabolism of natural growth inhibitors in the plant and abscised leaves
7. Natural growth inhibitors as allelopathogens and botanical herbicides
8. Natural growth inhibitors and stress conditions
9. Natural growth inhibitors and phytohormones in the intact plants and isolated cells, organs and tissues
10. Natural growth inhibitors and biotests
