Plant Stress Physiology Group

Stress physiology is the study of any external or internal condition that challenges the homeostasis of a cell or an organism. In Botany department, our research group focuses on: Assortment of stress resistant lines after screening process, especially of the indigenous and exotic germplasm; studies on the physiological and biochemical attributes such as changes gas exchange parameters, water use efficiency, osmotic adjustment, and stress proteins accountable for stress resistance; evaluation of the selected materials for their responses and economic production under salinity, drought, and high temperature stresses; suggesting the most appropriate materials for overall farming in stressed zones of the country.
