It is hard to over–state the significance of plant pigments in biology. Chlorophylls are arguably crucial natural compounds in the world, as they're required for photosynthesis. Carotenoids also are valuable for the survival of either crops and mammals, via their roles in photosynthesis and food, respectively. the opposite plant pigment teams, akin to flavonoids and betalains, have vital roles in either the biology of vegetation and the organisms with which crops interact.
This ebook offers an outline of pigment chemistry and biology, including an up–to–date account of the biosynthesis of pigments and the amendment in their creation utilizing biotechnology. The chapters hide a large scope of pigmentation learn – from the significance of structural range in producing the variety of colors obvious in crops, via to bettering human overall healthiness houses of plants through expanding pigment degrees in transgenic plants.
The quantity is directed at researchers and execs in plant biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics.
