It is hard to over–state the significance of plant pigments in biology. Chlorophylls are arguably crucial natural compounds in the world, as they're required for photosynthesis. Carotenoids also are invaluable for the survival of either vegetation and mammals, via their roles in photosynthesis and nutrients, respectively. the opposite plant pigment teams, corresponding to flavonoids and betalains, have very important roles in either the biology of vegetation and the organisms with which vegetation interact.
This ebook presents an summary of pigment chemistry and biology, including an up–to–date account of the biosynthesis of pigments and the amendment in their creation utilizing biotechnology. The chapters conceal a large scope of pigmentation learn – from the significance of structural variety in producing the diversity of colors noticeable in vegetation, via to bettering human healthiness houses of plants by way of expanding pigment degrees in transgenic plants.
The quantity is directed at researchers and pros in plant biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics.
