Prof. S.S. Narwal has planned this multi-volume BookResearch Methods in Plant Sciences. Its 5-volumes (Volume 1. Soil Analysis, Volume 2. Plant Protection and Volume 3. Plant Pathogens) Volumes 4. Plant Analysis and Volume 5. Plant Physiology) were published from India. Its 6-Volumes : (6). Cell Diagnostics, (7). Plant Bioassays, (8). Isolation, Identification and Characterization of Allelochemicals/Natural Products, (9). Volume 1. Soil Allelochemicals, (10).Volume 2. Soil sickness and (11). Volume 3. Forestry/Agroforestry) were published from USA. The book is devided into 3 Sections.Section I . Laboratory Studies includes 7 Chapters (Fluorescence of biologically active compounds in plant secretory cells, Allelopathic effects of dominant tree species in forests, Enzymes Bioassays , Laboratory Bioassay with Agroforestry trees and rhizosphere soil, Hydroponics, Laboratory Bioassays, Physiological responses of plants to phenolic compounds).Section II. Pot Culture Studies has 2 Chapters (Soil sickness, Pot Culture Studies) and Section 3. Field Studies includes 4 Chapters (Trees Physiological and Biochemical Processes, Multistorey Agroforestry Systems, Enzymes activity and IAA contents in soils, Morphological measurements) This book will serve as ready reference in the laboratory or class room and provides detailed methods for field studies in agriculture and allied fields including allelopathy. Information provided can be used to determine the different allelochemicals in various types of Agroecosystems. It will be useful for UG and PG students and researchers, soil scientists, biochemists, chemists and other plant science specialists. We have tried to provide appropriate methods to determine allelochemicals in soils. The users of this book can select suitable methods, according to the available facilities.
