Herbaceous Plants: Cultivation Methods, Grazing and Environmental Impacts


Florian Wallner (Editor)

Series: Botanical Research and Practices
BISAC: SCI011000

In this book, the authors present current research in the study of herbaceous plants and nicotiana. Topics include the role of diversity of herbaceous feed items for shrubby rangeland management; the biosynthesis and regulation of tobacco alkaloids; hybrid lethality in nicotiana; tolerance of herbaceous plants to multiple contaminations in an industrial barren near a nickel-copper smelter; effects of abiotic factors on herbaceous plant community structure; and the environmental performance of three novel opportunity biofuels: popular, brassica and cassava.
