system for plant physiology studies in that the elevated temperature can be accurately, precisely, and reliably controlled with minimal perturbation of other environmental factors. Global climate warming can affect functioning of crops. temperatures have been implicated in decreased crop. response to global warming has been increasing during. the last 10 to 15 years.

The environment shapes plants, but plants also influence the environment. They store carbon, fix nitrogen and produce oxygen1

The environment shapes plants, but plants also influence the environment. They store carbon, fix nitrogen and produce oxygen1. They shape weather patterns, provide flood defence, purify water, provide food, and offer solace and inspiration. This will require additional expertise from engineers, chemists, bioinformaticians and mathematicians, to name but a few.

Light has emerged as a key modulator of plant immunity . However, until very recently, the beneficial effects of light on plant resistance to pests and disease have been largely unappreciated. However, several studies have shown that infection by a range of pathogens, and the success of several insect herbivores, can be affected by the light environment of the host before contact with the consumer organism (Roberts and Paul, 2006).

Abstract-We investigated the role of photosynthesis in the photocontrol of extension growth of the hypocotyl of light-grown Cucumis sativus L. Previous work demonstrated that the inhibition of cucumber hypocotyl elongation is a fluence rate dependent response in red light.

Plants are the physical machines and plant physiology is the discipline .

Plants are the physical machines and plant physiology is the discipline that helps in understanding these machines in better form. It is the branch of science that helps in understanding how plants live and function. And lastly, environmental physiology, including response of plants to the environment and changes. Photo Morphogenesis is induced by light and several other processes like Chloroplast Differentiation, Phototropism, Germination and Flowering. Thus, Photo Morphogenesis is referred as Light Mediated Development.

The response of plants to light is mediated by different photoreceptors .

The response of plants to light is mediated by different photoreceptors, which are comprised of a protein covalently bonded to a light-absorbing pigment called a chromophore. Together, the two are called a chromoprotein. Blue-light receptors allow plants to gauge the direction and abundance of sunlight, which is rich in blue–green emissions. Water absorbs red light, which makes the detection of blue light essential for algae and aquatic plants. The Blue Light Responses.

The author discusses the ways in which higher plants respond to natural light environments throughout their life cycles. While previous texts on the subject have used the various light responses simply as a means of illustrating the molecular interaction between photoreceptors and cell metabolism, in this book the ways in which the plant detects, interprets and responds to the natural light environment are fully discussed. It takes a holistic rather than a mechanistic approach concerning the influence of natural light environments on plant growth and development, as well as discussing the recent research in the rapidly developing field. The emphasis is placed on the ecological implications of studies in plant physiology and biochemistry.
