From Editor’s Desk
Over the course of human history, plants have received widespread and occasionally dominant aesthetic and intellectual attention. Research of plant systems can also instruct us on how to handle issues with agriculture, human health, and the environment. The NBU Journal of Plant Sciences (NBUJPS) is an international peer-reviewed journal that has been published by the Department of Botany, University of North Bengal, since 2007. It gives the platform for publishing top-notch research on a variety of topics in plant science, animal-plant interactions, environment and ecology, and the evolution of the living world.
The journal's editorial board publishes high-calibre articles in print and online (www.njps.nbu.ac.in) in one volume each year. The NBUJPS has officially registered for membership in CrossRef. All the articles will be assigned unique DOI numbers and will include other CrossRef services like similarity checking and reference linking. It gives me extreme pleasure to inform you that the NBUJPS publishes all the articles free of charge.
We are delighted to inform you that volume 14 has been published and will have 11 articles including review and research papers. This volume includes articles on nanotechnology, growth performance, characterization and ecology of various crops and weeds, phytoremediation of diseases and stresses in various crops, and microbes in extreme climates. These articles were contributed by numerous senior professors, scientists, and junior researchers from various institutions. The articles in this issue cover a wide spectrum of recent advancements in both basic and applied fields of plant science research, and they are all very important. Regarding contemporary breakthroughs and need-based research, this volume will greatly benefit all scientists and researchers working in various sectors of plant sciences.
