Oxygen, Nitrogen and Sulfur Species in Post-harvest Physiology of Horticultural Crops, Volume 3 in the Plant Gasotransmitter series, analyzes the latest advances in post-harvest physiology. The book presents metabolic cascades and highlights the role of gasotransmitters as intercellular regulators of metabolic processes.Post-harvest physiology differs between climacteric and non-climacteric fruits and vegetables, as well as for fresh-cut flowers and non-food plants. Initial chapters review the cascades, intercellular pathways and messenger molecules that drive ripeness and longevity, presenting the chemistry behind key pathways. The books also takes a deep dive into core gasotransmitters, describing the data behind known properties, chemistry and physiological roles. Applications for prolonging shelf-life via the control of post-harvest fungi, bacteria and omics approaches are reviewed in detail, offering readers guidance on how to put gasotransmitters research into practice. Oxygen, Nitrogen and Sulfur Species in Post-harvest Physiology of Horticultural Crops is an essential resource for students, researchers and agronomists interested in plant physiology, biochemistry and plant hormones.
