Download E-books Redesigning rice photosynthesis to increase yield: proceedings of the Workshop on the Quest to Reduce Hunger: Redesigning Rice Photosynthesis, held in Los Banos, Philippines, 30 November-3 December 1999 PDF

By J.E. Sheehy, P.L. Mitchell and B. Hardy (Eds.)

Rice yields have to bring up with a purpose to maintain speed with the starting to be inhabitants of Asia and to relieve starvation and poverty. There seems, even if, to be a biophysical restrict linked to traditional photosynthetic pathways. The study provided during this booklet goals at realizing how the rice plant's photosynthetic pathway should be redesigned to beat present yield limits. the criteria controlling yield are mentioned from the agronomic to the molecular point. clients for making improvements to rice photosynthesis comprise utilizing genetic engineering to transform rice right into a C4 plant.

The a number of chapters during this publication take care of photosynthesis; a comparability of C3 and C4 pathways; genes body structure and serve as, and likewise talk about this within the broader context of monetary results of yield advancements for poverty, the molecular genetics of photosynthesis, and ecophysiological and evolutionary views of photosynthesis in wetlands.

Researchers on rice, photosynthesis, agronomy, genetic engineering, and foodstuff coverage will locate a lot of curiosity during this e-book.
