Nanomaterials in Plants, Algae and Microorganisms: Concepts and Controversies: Volume Onediscusses the vast amount of nanomaterials that have been released into the environment in a relatively short amount of time. There is a need to understand what the implications to the health of our biota and ecosystems are as the earth is increasingly inundated with these materials. Not all of the effects are negative, but their impacts are increasing exponentially due to their size, quantity and other factors.

  • Covers the issues of nanoparticles on more simple organisms and their ecosystems
  • Presents issues that are specific to terrestrial ecosystems
  • Contains contributions from global experts who help increase understanding at the physiological, biochemical, molecular, and even genomic and proteomic levels
  • Provides a critical assessment of the progress taking place on this topic and sheds light on future research needs
Dr Tripathi has studied the effect of silica on physiological and biochemical responses such as photosynthesis, biotic and a-biotic stress, nutrient uptake as well as yield and quality of crop plants to stress factors such as metal, and the synchronized detoxification of harmful reactive oxygen species by their antioxidant defense mech...
