The book `Plant Analysis: Comprehensive Methods and Protocols' is a complete laboratory manual for analytical methods and techniques in the field of Agriculture, Plant Physiology, Biochemistry and related Plant Sciences. Right from nutrient analysis in plants, it covers estimations of macromolecules, such as amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids and metabolites of fatty acid metabolism. Protocols for the assay of various enzymes of nitrogen metabolism, ammonia assimilation, photosynthetic CO2-fixation, reactive oxygen species, carbohydrate, phosphorus and energy metabolism have been elucidated in the book. Special emphasis has also been given to techniques on specific topics such as Electrophoresis, Molecular Biology, Histo-enzymology, Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixation and assay of plant growth hormones. Thus the present book is one stop solution for all important techniques and analytical methods for students and research workers engaged in plant sciences and agricultural research.
