Aimed at researchers, teachers and students, this comprehensive book on “Antioxidants in plants-Role and Function” deals with the diverse functions of antioxidants and phyto-nutrients in plants. The role of antioxidants in plants subjected to biotic and abiotic stresses and compositional changes during post-harvest storage and processing are discussed.The book also deals with effects of climate change on plant productivity and their antioxidant profiles. Three chapters are devoted to the biosynthesis of flavours in plants and their function in combating stresses. The roles of antioxidants in promotion of human health and nutrition and prevention of diseases are also covered in two chapters. A section wholly dedicated to methods of isolation and assay of free radicals, antioxidants and flavours is a special feature of this book. Currently, there is no single source reference book covering such wide ranging topics on antioxidants and hence this book is intended to serve as a complete reference book on plant antioxidants for research students and teachers.
