Reproductive biology of plants is an emerging frontier area in plant sciences. Recent advances and research in this field are laying foundations for major conservation programmes initiated for protection of plant species all over the world. Reproductive mechanisms that operate in plants account for the diversity and evolution of many important families. The present volume is a compilation of eighteen chapters written by eminent scientists who work on various aspects of plant reproduction, conservation of species, and molecular characterization of reproductive traits. It gives updated literature on the topics of academic and research interest. Also, the endeavour is to incite inquisitive youngsters to pursue research in this field. The book is well illustrated and makes an interesting reference material for undergraduate as well as postgraduate students. Contents: 1- Reproductive Biology: An Important Discipline of Plant Sciences 2- A Molecular Genetic Approach Elucidates Complex Plant Reproductive Processes 3- Recruitment Limitation: A Major Driver for Species Vulnerability 4- Phenological Implications for the Conservation of Forest Trees 5- Techniques Involved in Reproductive Biology: Newer Insights and Future Perspectives 6- Sterility in Plants 7- Apomixis in Angiosperms 8- Love in the Air: Wind Pollination Ecological and Evolutionary Considerations 9- Emerging Trends in Endosperm Biology 10- Reproductive Biology in Relation to Conservation: Case History of Artemisia maritima L. 11- An Appraisal on In Vitro Conservation and Biotechnological Interventions in Spilanthes acmella Murr. 12- Genetic Control of Mitosis and Meiosis in Angiosperms 13- Role of Reproductive Biology in Conservation of Plants 14- Serpentinophytes: Resource Survey and Conservation for Potential Applications in Biotechnology 15- Pollination Ecology of Cullenia exarillata A. Robyns, a Key Food Plant in the Tropical Evergreen Forest Ecosystem of the Western Ghats. 16- Reproductive Success of Angiosperms in Response to Climate: An Assessment 17- Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi: Potential Role in Conservation of Endangered Plants 18- Genetic Diversity in Various Seed Spices and Medicinal Plants Using Different Molecular Markers Index. Audience: Undergraduate and Postgraduate students of Botany, Biotechnology & Biology.
