Plant Biochemistry

Biochemistry of Plants, Plant Physiology


Plant biochemistry is the study of the biochemistry of autotrophic organisms such as photosynthesis and other plant specific biochemical processes.

The plants and higher fungi produce through their metabolism a vast variety of chemical substances. These are important for the plant itself, but also for the environment and for the recovery and use by humans. The Plant Biochemistry deals with biochemical processes of plant metabolism. The entirety of the vital processes of plants is also known as plant physiology.

The plant biochemistry is therefore a branch of Biochemistry.

A variety of chemical aspects as well as other disciplines play in this field a role, for example natural products chemistry, phytochemistry, the chemistry of pesticides, the chemistry of vegetable dyes and more.

The following list includes online available information and institutions in the field of plant biochemistry.
