This book contains topics under plant Biochemistry and Physiology. The book is written with the aim of making student understand the concepts of the subject in a easy way. The book contains the headings such as photosynthesis, Nitrogen metabolism, Plant nutrients, Dormancy, Plant growth regulators. Even though there are book in this title I presume this book may be helpful to the readers. Photosynthesis is the process by which some bacteria, algae, vascular plants and some protistans convert light energy from sunlight into chemical energy in the form of reducing power such as NADPH or NADH and ATP. This chemical energy is utilized to drive CO2 fixation and reduction to produce sugar, which is then converted into ATP, the "fuel" used by all living things. The conversion of unusable sunlight energy into usable chemical energy is associated with the actions of the green pigment chlorophyll. Most of the time, the photosynthetic process uses water and release the oxygen.
