Abstract The belowground soil environment is an active space for microbes, particularly Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) and P hosphate Solubilizing Bacteria (PSB) that can colonize with roots of higher plants. In the present experiment, we...
Abstract Levels of arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), and copper (Cu) are increasing in the soils worldwide. Such contaminants cause toxicity in the plant systems which adversely affects growth and productivity. The objective of the present investigation...
Legumes are important source of protein for teeming human population. These are very sensitive to salt levels and soil drought status, experiencing water deficit due to osmotic stress possibly coupled with biochemical perturbations induced by the...
The growing area of genetically modified (GM) crops has significantly expanded since they were first commercialized in 1996. Currently 400 million acres of the fertile land worldwide are used to cultivate genetic engineering (GE) crops such as rice...
Nitrogen (N) is an essentially critical element which is involved in signalling and can affect plant growth and development. The plants have evolved different strategies involving short- and long-ranged signalling pathways to cope with the changes...
Soybean, the worldwide main source of oil and high protein feeds for the livestock sector has a high cadmium (Cd) accumulation capacity. With this background, the hydroponic culture experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of different...
The present study was conducted to evaluate the differences in photosynthetic parameters and antioxidant enzyme activity among two genotypes of soybean (Glycine max L.) in response to salinity stress. Ten-day-old seedlings, grown hydroponically,...
A hydroponic experiment was conducted to investigate the toxicity caused by arsenate (As V) and its detoxification responses in coriander. Ten days after germination, coriander seedlings were treated with 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100 μM (Na2HAsO4) of...
Nano-titanium dioxide (nTiO2) has been reported to improve tolerance of plants against different environmental stresses by modulating various physiological and biochemical processes. Nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to act as an important stress...
Abstract The effects of climate temperature and water stress on growth and several stress markers were investigated in sweet basil plants. Some growth parameters (shoot length and number of leaves) and photosynthetic chlorophyll contents were...
Arsenic (As) is a toxic ubiquitous metalloid. Exposure of plants to As can result in various morphological, physiological and biochemical variations. Hydroponic experiment was conducted to study the growth response, lipid peroxidation, proline and...
Abstract Among abiotic factors, salinity and drought stress affect every aspect of plant from physiology to metabolic activities. Understanding of abiotic stress responses and signal transduction to control adaptive pathways is a crucial step in...
Abstract The present study was focused on synthesis and characterization of copper nanoparticles to evaluate their efficacy against fruit rot pathogen of chilli crop. The green synthesis of nanoparticles was carried out by using extracts of...
