Apart from the role of conventional phytohormones, strigolactones, karrikins and alkamides have been reported to function as potential growth regulators in plants. Strigolactones participate in molecular crosstalk pathways with important phytohormones and biomolecules like auxin, ethylene, jasmonic acid, and nitric oxide. Interestingly, strigolactones function as endogenous growth regulators in plants, regulate signaling and communication at the rhizosphere, and act as growth stimulants in parasitic plants. This book contains comprehensive analysis of the recent investigations and future possibilities associated with the physiological roles of strigolactones, karrikins and alkamides in plants. Salient Features Provides comprehensive analysis of the eco-physiological aspects of the novel plant growth regulators Useful for investigators in plant physiology, developmental biology, crop biotechnology, plant breeding, plant signaling and communication. Explains the integrative role of strigolactones, karrikins and alkamides in plant development and signaling

Author Biography

Soumya Mukherjee has accomplished his Ph.D from the Department of Botany, University of Delhi. He has been as ex faculty of Ramjas College, University of Delhi. Currently he is employed as a faculty in the Department of Botany, Jangipur College, University of Kalyani, West Bengal. He has worked as a CSIR- research fellow in the area of abiotic stress physiology of plants. He has published both research and review articles in various peer-reviewed international journals. He is serving as an associate editor in the editorial board of Plant signalling and Behaviour (Taylor and Francis). He has authored e-learning module in Plant Physiology and Biochemistry published as an effort of National Mission on Education through ICT (MHRD Project undertaken by University of Delhi). He has acted as a subject reviewer of some peer reviewed international journals on plant science. Currently he is focused on undergraduate teaching to Botany (Hons.) and Life Science students in various fundamental aspects areas of Plant Physiology. He continues to work with research interests in salt-stress physiology associated with the aspects of hormone signalling, and biomolecular crosstalk mechanisms in plants. Tariq Aftab received his Ph.D. in the Department of Botany at Aligarh Muslim University, India, and is currently an Assistant Professor there. He is the recipient of a prestigious Leibniz-DAAD fellowship from Germany, Raman Fellowship from the Government of India, and Young Scientist Awards from the State Government of Uttar Pradesh (India) and Government of India. After completing his doctorate, he has worked as Research Fellow at National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources, New Delhi and as Post-doctorate Fellow at Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi, India. Dr. Aftab also worked as Visiting Scientist at Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK), Gatersleben, Germany, and in the Department of Plant Biology, Michigan State University, USA. He is a member of various scientific associations from India and abroad. He has edited several books with international publishers, including Elsevier Inc., Springer Nature and CRC Press (Taylor & Francis Group), co-authored several book chapters, and published over more than 60 research papers in peer-reviewed international journals. His research interests include physiological, proteomic, and molecular studies on medicinal and aromatic plants.
