Postharvest Physiology and Biochemistry of Fruits and Vegetables presents an updated, interrelated and sequenced view of the contribution of fruits and vegetables on human health, their aspects of plant metabolism, physical and chemical/compositional changes during the entire fruit development lifecycle, the physiological disorders and biochemical effects of modified/controlled atmospheres, and the biotechnology of horticultural crops. The book is written specifically for those interested in preharvest and postharvest crop science and the impact of physiological and biochemical changes on their roles as functional foods.
- Deals with the developmental aspects of the lifecycle in whole fruits
- Describes issues, such as the morphology and anatomy of fruits, beginning with the structural organization of the whole plant and explaining the fruit structure and its botanical classification
- Addresses biotechnological concepts that control firmness, quality and the nutritional value of fruits
Researchers and academics; undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students for the courses: "Plant physiology" and "Biochemistry and physiology during the postharvest of fruits and vegetables"; those working in fields related to horticulture, agronomy, plant biology, food science and technology
