Boron in Plants and Agriculture: Exploring the Physiology of Boron and Its Impact on Plant Growth highlights the various emerging techniques and applications that are currently being used in plant-boron interaction studies, and provides a direction towards implementation of programs and practices that will enable sustainable production of crops, resilient to boron stress.

Boron is an important micronutrient that plays a crucial role in the growth and development of plants, however despite a significant amount of recent research, there has remained a gap in the understanding of boron update and transportation. Boron deficiency is one of the most widespread deficiencies among plant micronutrients in agriculture and it causes a wide range of symptoms including the cessation of root elongation, reduced leaf expansion and the loss of fertility, depending on the plant species and developmental stage.

This book reviews and integrates the currently available information on the impact of boron on functional and adaptive features of plants from molecular, biochemical, physiological to whole plant level. It is a key resource for those working in stress physiology, stress proteins, genomics, proteomics, genetic engineering and other fields of plant physiology related to boron nutrition, including agriculture.

Tariq Aftab received a Ph.D. degree in the Department of Botany, Aligarh Muslim University, India, and is currently an Assistant Professor there. He received prestigious Leibniz-DAAD fellowship from Germany, a Raman Fellowship from the Government of India, and Young Scientist Awards from the State Government of Uttar Pradesh and Government of India. He has worked as Visiting Scientist at IPK, Gatersleben, Germany, and in the Department of Plant Biology, Michigan State University, United States. He has edited 14 books with international publishers, including Elsevier Inc., Springer Nature, and CRC Press (Taylor & Francis Group), co-authored several book chapters, and published over 65 research papers in peer-reviewed international journals. His research interests include physiological, proteomic, and molecular studies on medicinal and crop plants.
Marco Landi is a senior scientist in plant physiology and biochemistry at University of Pisa, Italy. His research focuses on biochemical, molecular and physiological mechanisms through which Mediterranean plants accommodate environmental stress. Recent research has investigated the photoprotective role of carotenoids, anthocyanins and flavonoids?sensu lato?in plants subjected to climate change factors. His research group is also developing optical models to assess the occurrence of anthocyanin-metal bonding, to explore the possibility that anthocyanins might additionally function as metal chelators.
Ioannis E. Papadakis received his PhD in Pomology from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) in 2004. Currently, he is working as Assistant Professor in Agricultural University of Athens, Greece.?He has authored more than 39 research articles published in peer-reviewed journals and more than 50 full research articles published in conference proceedings in English or Greek language. His research interests include plant nutrition and fertilization; abiotic stresses (nutrient deficiencies and toxicities, drought, salinity, waterlogging, etc.); sexual and asexual propagation of fruit tree species; evaluation of fruit tree cultivars and rootstock, and effects of various cultural practices on tree yield and fruit quality.
Fabrizio Araniti is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at the University of Milan in Milan, Italy. Previously, he received his PhD in 2011 in Plant Ecophysiology from the University "Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria, Italy. He has co-authored over 45 internal journal articles and 7 book chapters. His research interests are mainly focused on plant-plant interaction and extraction, identification and study of secondary metabolites of plant origin with herbicidal activity on their impact on the physiology and metabolism of plants, and on their potential use in eco-friendly agriculture.
Dr. Brown is a distinguished professor at the University of California, Davis - USA. He received his B.Sc. in 1984 from Adelaide University, Australia and Ph.D from Cornell University, USA in 1988. Dr. Brown is recognized globally as a leader in both basic and applied plant nutrition research with notable contributions including the establishment of nickel as the 14th essential plant nutrient, founding research on the function, transport and management of boron, and significant contributions to research on potassium, nitrogen, zinc, foliar fertilization, salinity and biostimulants. Dr. Brown has authored more than 220 scientific journal articles, and is among the highest cited experts in plant nutrition globally.

Dr. Brown has received many awards for excellence in research and extension including the United States Department of Agriculture extension award, the American Society of Plant Biology Dennis Hoagland Award for Plant Nutrition, and the Soil Science Society of America Leo M Walsh Distinguished Lecturer award for Soil Fertility Research and Extension and the International Fertilizer Association's Norman Borlaug Award for career contributions to Plant Nutrition. Dr. Brown was awarded the position of Distinguished Professor, University of California-Davis in 2021.
