Physiology of Sugarcane looks at the development of a suite of well-established and developing biofuels derived from sugarcane and cane-based co-products, such as bagasse. Chapters provide broad-ranging coverage of sugarcane biology, biotechnological advances, and breakthroughs in production and processing techniques. This single volume resource brings together essential information to researchers and industry personnel interested in utilizing and developing new fuels and bioproducts derived from cane crops
Sugarcane: Physiology, Biochemistry, and Functional Biology covers all aspects of sugarcane from anatomy and morphology through crop growth and development to processing for industrial and trade advances. Chapters examine the evolving body of foundational scientific knowledge on source/sink interactions, production and partitioning of photosynthates, respiration, water relations, mineral nutrition, and the systems level interactions of these physiological processes in the plant and crop. Topics discussed include factors that limit crop productivity with suggestions for how to reduce these limits through breeding or biotechnological approaches. Emphasis has been given to sugarcane’s growing importance as a food and bioenergy source, including its potential as a lignocellulosic feedstock.
Composed of contributions from leading experts worldwide, Sugarcane: Physiology, Biochemistry and Functional Biology is far-reaching in its coverage and global in its appeal. It is a must-have reference for all those involved in sugarcane research, production, and trade.
