Plant biology

 Plant biology is the study of all fundamental chemical and physical process occurring in plant. These are the sub discipline of botany that describes the function or physiology of plants. The fields that are closely related to this are plant morphology (study of structure of plants), plant ecology (study of plants interactions with the environment), crop physiology (study of plant growth), plant cell biology, biophysics and plant stress physiology. The plant biology deals with interactions between cells, tissues, and organs within a plant. Different cells and tissues are physically and chemically specialized to perform different functions. Photosynthesis is a process which is used by plants to convert light energy into chemical energy that can later be released to fuel the organisms' activities and this also absorbs carbon-di-oxide and gives out oxygen. Phyto chemistry strive to describe the structures of the large number of secondary metabolic compounds found in plants. The part of the science namely environmental physiology, deals with effects and adaptations of the plants to the adverse conditions of the environment which is caused by several factors is now receiving the greater attention of the researcher all over the world. This is known as the physiology of plant stress.

Phytopathology

Phytopathology is the branch of scientific study that deals with the diseases in plants which is caused by pathogens, organism that causes infections and environmental conditions like temperature, ph. Some of the organisms that cause infectious disease include fungi which belongs to ascomycetes and basidiomycetes, oomycetes(fungus-like organisms), bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants etc. Plant virology is a branch that deals with the plant viruses which are wide spread and economically important plant pathogens. This also studies about the structure, morphology and reproduction category of plant viruses. Plant diseases are recognized by the symptoms (whether the sickness be internal or external) produced by them or by sick appearance of the plant. Plant disease signifies the condition of the plant due to disease or cause of the disease(pathogens). Plant disease may be mainly defined in terms of the damage caused to the plant or to its organ by the pathogens. The plant disease should be controlled as it is necessary for the reliable food production. It is very important to identify the pathogens and treating them.

Phyto morphology

Phyto morphology is the branch that deals with the study of the physical form and external structure of plants. This is actually distinct from plant anatomy, because plant anatomy is the study of the internal structure of plants, especially at the microscopic level. Plant morphology is useful in the identification of plants visually by seeing it.  There are four crucial areas of investigation in plant morphology.  All this major fields overlaps with another field of the biological sciences. Plant morphology treats both the vegetative structures of plants, and also the reproductive structures of the plant. Plant pigments include a variety of different kinds of molecule like  porphyrinscarotenoidsanthocyanins and betalains. All biological pigments which is present in the plants selectively absorb certain wavelengths of light while reflecting others. Plants also exhibit natural variation in their form and structure. The simulated growth of plants is a notable task in of systems biology and mathematical biology, which seeks to reproduce plant morphology with computer software. Electronic trees which is also called as e-trees usually use L-systems to simulate growth

Plant and molecular biotechnology

Plant and molecular biotechnology are specific area of plant science involving the use of scientific tools and techniques. These techniques include genetic engineering, molecular markers, molecular diagnosis, vaccines, and tissue culture. These techniques are used to modify living organisms like plant, animal and microorganism. These field often overlaps with the other area of science due to the tools used in this. Tissue culture is the growth of tissues or growth of cells outside the body of the organism in in-vivo or in in-vitro condition. This is generally facilitated by the use of a liquid, semi-solid, or solid growth medium, such as broth or agar. Genetic engineering is the branch of science that uses technology to directly manipulate the genome of the organism using biotechnology. It is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells. It also includes the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved or novel organisms which produces better yield and also a disease resistant ones. Genetic engineering techniques have been applied in numerous fields like agriculture, medicine and research.

Plant genetics and plant genomics

Plant Genetics is a branch of science that basically deals with heredity, traits, and especially the mechanisms of hereditary transmission from parent to child and the variation of inherited characteristics among plant. Eventhough there has been some drastic changes in the biological sciences in the past twenty years, there is still a great deal that more to be discovered. The possibilities of plant genetic research increased immeasurably with the successful completion of the sequencing of the genomes of rice and agriculturally as well as scientifically important plants. Molecular biology is a branch that incorporates the study of biological cells at a molecular level. It deals with the interactions between the various systems of a cell, like the interrelationship of DNA, RNA and protein synthesis, protein structure. And it is also the process of learning how these interactions are regulated. Biomolecules, gene expression, gene regulation, biochemical pathways, molecular biotechnology are the part of this. The regulation of gene expression is generally described as gene silencing. RNA-Sequencing is used to analyze the changing cellular transcriptome continually.

Plant and molecular breeding

Plant breeding is the technology which is used to select, for in plant molecular biology, or, to place particular traits into a plant as in the case of genetic modification. The techniques such as marker assisted selection and doubled haploids in molecular breeding are immensely useful techniques. In a certain way, the plant breeding can also be used in the organic cultivation. There are various methods of techniques through which plant breeding can be accomplished. Those techniques range from simply selecting plants with desirable characteristics for propagation, then to methods that make use of knowledge of genetics and chromosomes, and to more complex molecular techniques. The main aim of this technique is to develop new varieties that are higher-yielding, disease resistant, drought-resistant or regionally adapted to different environments and growing conditions.

Plant nanotechnology

The complex and different responses produced by the plants to nanoparticles, are the signal transduction mechanisms and the regulation of DNA expression. Some other mechanisms displayed by the plants are the photosynthesis of nanoparticles, the role of nanoparticles in the antioxidant systems of botany and agriculture. The ultimate aim of analyzing the metabolomics of the plant is achieved by studying the effects of nanoparticles on plants, its application in mass spectrometry. The expanding innovation in the field of nanotechnology are creating the novel applications in the biotechnology and agriculture fields. Due to its unique physio-chemical properties of these compounds nanoparticles have received much response from the researchers from all over the world. Nanoparticles are used as “smart” delivery systems in the planet biology thus enabling the Nobel Prize Winner P. Ehrlich support and name this particle as “magic bullets.” Nanoparticles act as the chemical delivery agents that target molecules to specific cellular organelles in plants thus playing the important role in agriculture. The uses of nanoparticles in the agriculture are as compound fertilizers and minute pesticides.

Agriculture and Horticulture

Agricultural science is the study of the science and management of biological systems and aims at the cultivation plants and fungi, medicinal plants and other products for foodfiber and biofuels which is fused to sustain and improve the human life on earth. Horticulture is a subdivision of agriculture that concerns with the application of technology in the plant cultivation. Not only science and technology it also deals with the arts and business of the plant cultivation. The main aim of the horticulture is to cultivate food crops like fruits, vegetables, nuts, mushrooms, seeds and other crops like herbs, sprouts, algae, seaweeds and non-food crops such as grass, flowers and ornamental trees and plants and also medicinal plants. It not only concerned with the production of crops but also takes care of the environment too.  They also perform plant conservation, landscape restoration and maintenance.  They also do garden design according to the crops and quantity of the crops. Horticulturist are the one who take care of this gardens and their aim is to produce healthier food crops and to provide the people in the poverty-stricken area the nutrious food at the low cost.

Indigenous medicine

Indigenous medicine is also called as traditional medicine. Traditional medicine is the one which was prevalent before the era of modern medicine. Mostly they used plants to cure the diseases. And they are used by herbal therapies, traditional medicine practitioners. The traditional medicines varied according to belief and culture of the people. In this modern era, the people consider that these traditional medicines are unsuitable. One of the plants Ginseng which is widely used in traditional medicine and now this plant plays a major role in herbal health care. Every part of the plant has been used for the treatment of diseases. One of the main advantages of traditional medicine is that it doesn’t have side effects as it is in modern medicine. Loss of strength, bleeding disorders are treated using the roots of the plant. Ethnomedicine is a study that compares the various types of traditional practices that are followed by the indigenous people.

Medicinal and aromatic plant sciences

Medicinal plants have been used since the prehistoric times. In developed countries, eventhough they do not believe in traditional medicine, yet modern medicine derives its substrates from the plants. Plants produces chemical substance that can fight against the microbial infections. Yet people living in developing countries prefer traditional medicine as their primary health care. Because of this increasing trend towards use of medicinal plant, the plant resource in the world is under enormous threat. Many organization around the world has been conducting researches to preserve these plants from extinction.  Aromatic plants which produces aromatic substance which is used for food and perfumes mainly. As the world is keeping on moving towards the modernization these plants are also under threat. Some of the aromatic plants are Aloe Vera, Acacia Concinna, Citrus Aurantium, etc.

Aquatic plants ecology

Aquatic plants are plants those that are living in aquatic environments like fresh water and salt water. Hydrophytes or macrophytes are the two groups of plants. These plants live submerged in water, or at the water's surface so they have special features in them. The common adaptation of these plants is aerenchyma. But other common things are floating leaves and finely dissected leaves. These plants grow in the regions where there is water permanently or the land submerged in water. Algae is the very important part of the aquatic life. These aquatic plants provide cover, habitat, and food so they play the important role in aquatic life. There should not be too many plants because they can hinder some of the activities like fishing, water skiing, and aesthetic appreciation. The major threats that are posed to the aquatic ecology are the exotic species and plants. They cannot be eradicated once they adapt to this new environment.

Forest ecology

The Forest ecology is a complex ecosystem which is interrelated patterns of flora and fauna that supports the different life forms on this earth. The trees in the forest help us to create a different environment. This environment will affect the life style of the animals and plants that is living in the forest. These forest plays a vital role in the environment. These forest is helpful in many ways because it brings rainfall which reduces the temperature of the earth and also it prevents soil erosion thus retaining the nutrients of the soil. They act as the purifier of the air because they take in carbon di oxide and produces the large quantity of oxygen. Now deforestation is the major problems that the forest are facing which creates the imbalance in the ecology of the forest. Now the organizations have to take necessary steps to restore the forest ecology to an extent.

Soil-plant science

Soil fertility is the main factor to be considered in cultivation or in gardening. Fertility is defined as the ability of soil to provide all essential nutrients to the plants in the form that is suitable for the plants to take in the nutrients and also in a suitable balance. Fertility of the soil also support the exuberant growth of plants with very minimum effort of the human. The things that are needed for the soil to be fertile is it should have sufficient minerals, organic matter, etc. They also should have good soil structure and moisture retention ability.  There are two types in soil fertility, they are permanent and temporary fertility. Soil quality is a major determinant of plant distribution and growth.  Soil science is the branch of science that deals with the study of soil which considers the soil as a natural resource on the surface of the Earth. It also deals with soil formation and evolution, mapping of the soil and soil erosion. The demand for the crops is on continuous rise so there is a great need in recycling or retaining the fertility of the soil. The factors that affect soil fertility is climate, pH of the soil, chemicals and pesticides etc.

Biodiversity

Biodiversity generally refers to the variety of plant and animal life in the world or in a particular habitat. Biodiversity measures the variation at  three levels they are the genetic, the species, and the ecosystem level. Biodiversity is the very important factor to be considered. Human activities have destroyed the biodiversity in all the levels. Plant plays the important role in the diversity so it is very important to conserve the plant diversity plants forms the basis of every food webs so it is very important to take necessary steps to conserve the plant biodiversity. Today many plants are in the verge of extinction so the conservation of those plants should of first priority.

MARKET ANALYSIS

IMPORTANCE AND SCOPE

Plant science is the study of the structure, function, growth and protection of plants. Plant science is divided into three major catagories, they are agronomy, horticulture and forestry. Without plants, we and all other animals would not exist. We primarily depend on plants for food. They also have impact on the economy of a nation. Compared to the hundreds of plants on earth, we cultivate very few. Plant science has vibrant scope in conducting research in breeding, physiology, production, yield and management of crop. Plant science has the wide range of study field like plant morphology, plant pathology, molecular biology, plant genetics, phytochemistry and many more subsequent fields.

Molecular biology is arguably one of the most important fields in biology. Plant biotechnology is leading the way in applications and will continue to bring innovations into the field. The field of plant biology is making remarkable steps forward in the use of genomics technologies to understand the mechanisms controlling many aspects of development, responses to the environment, hormone signaling, genome evolution and epigenetics. It seems that exciting times lie ahead for plant biotechnology that may lead to important applications in agriculture and other cultivation to help feed the growing global population.

Why Dubai?

Dubai is the capital city of UAE. UAE is located in a hot and arid desert with one of the most fragile ecosystem in the world. However, despite the harsh conditions, the country still manages to support an impressive 800 species of plants. Now protecting the natural heritage and conserving it has become one of the priorities in these regions. So, this global expert meeting in plant science aims that all the experts in this field, from all over the world and discuss about the latest innovations in the plant technologies which will help us to improve the productivity and restore the biodiversity to an extent.

Famous places which has the largest plant biodiversity

Seventy per cent of the world's species is found in just 12 countries: Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mexico and Peru. The entire Hindu Kush–Himalayan belt has an estimated 25,000 plant species, comprising 10 per cent of the world's flora. Tropical regions support two-thirds of the estimated 250,000 plant species. The highest tree diversity recorded to date is 1,200 species in a 52-hectare plot in Lambir Hills National Park, Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo). Overall, tropical rainforests are thought to contain 50–90 per cent of all species. Some 2,600-bird species (about 30 per cent of the total) depend on tropical forests.

Plants that are extinct over the years

There are many flora and fauna are become extinct over the period of time. We have identified very few eloral species among the millions. But many species have been extinct because of the natural calamities and the activities of men. Many species are the natives of the forest which was destroyed due the the activities of men.
About 869 species have been identified as became extinct in various classess of the plant kingdom. Mosses, Gymnosperms, monocots are being under constant threat. The extinction rate has been increased over the period of time. So its time to take neccessary steps to identify and reduce the extinction rate and to increase the population of the endangered species.
