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.

Author Biography

Dr. Vasileios Ziogas is a researcher at the Hellenic Agricultural Organization - DIMITRA (ELGO-DIMITRA). He was awarded his doctoral degree (PhD) from the Faculty of Agriculture of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. His doctoral thesis was focused upon the study of Hydrogen Sulfide and Nitric Oxide as priming molecules towards drought stress upon citrus plants. His scientific research focuses on the study of nitro-oxidative signalling pathways involved in the plant's response to stress factors, while emphasis is being given in the research of treatment technologies towards the amelioration of abiotic stress factors and prolong of postharvest life of agricultural commodities. To date Dr. Ziogas is the author of 17 scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals, as well as 3 book chapters. He currently serves as peer reviewer in several SCI journals. Francisco J. Corpas is a Research Professor of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) who has more than 30 years of research experience in the metabolism of Reactive Oxygen, Nitrogen and Sulfur Species (ROS, RNS and RSS, respectively) in higher plants under physiology and environmental stress conditions using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as plants of agricultural interest. Research interests include the implications of these reactive species in fruit ripening and the nitro-oxidative metabolism of plant peroxisome. He was the Head of the Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology of Plants (2014-2018) at Research Institute named "Estacion Experimental del Zaidin"-CSIC, Granada, Spain. He has published more than 226 refereed research papers/review articles in peer-reviewed journals and has edited ten books.
