Plant signaling is the capacity of plants to detect and react to the earth to change their morphology, physiology and phenotype in like manner. Different subdivisions, for example, plant physiology, nature and atomic science are used to examine the capacities of the plant. Plants respond to chemicals, gravity, light, dampness, contaminations, temperature, oxygen and carbon dioxide focuses, parasite pervasion, malady, physical disturbance, sound and touch.

Many chemicals are critical for plant growth and development and in integrating various stress signals and controlling downstream stress responses by modulating gene expression machinery and regulating various pumps and biochemical reactions. Plant hormones are responsible for chemical signaling in plants. Auxin is the hormone responsible for phototropism in plants. The drought signaling in plants is done by Abscisic acid during the time when there is stress on water availability. Calcium signaling is one of the very important intracellular second messenger molecules involved in many signal transduction pathways in plants. Nitric Oxide signaling is also an important chemical signaling adopted by plants for efficient utilization of Nitrogen from the soil.

Crop Improvement involves in the engineering of plants done for the benefit of humanity. It can be achieved by three steps- Selection, Isolation and Breeding. By selecting and isolating plants for cultivation, the early farmers were influencing which plants would cross-pollinate. Breeding was done in such a way that two plants are selected, and they are crossed to produce offspring having the desired traits of both parents. Gene editing is the insertion, deletion or replacement of DNA at a specific site in the genome of an organism or cell which can be done with the help of molecular scissors. Genetically Modified crops have been developed to resist abiotic stresses, such as extreme temperature, drought or salinity, and biotic stresses, such as pathogens, insects etc. and to increase the crop yield.

Plant Hormones are chemical messengers that are made in one place in the plant body and deliver their message in a totally different place in the plant body. There are many hormones such as Auxin, Gibberellin, Cytokinin, Ethylene and Abscisic Acid by which each hormone is responsible for each function in plants. The drought signaling in plants is done by Abscisic acid during the time when there is stress on water availability. These hormones found only in small concentration but plays a vital role in plant growth, metabolism, aging etc. and study of these hormones are necessary to know well about plants.

Genomes have evolved in nature and all populations in the past as well as in modern times have been evolving. There are many ways of origin of species in nature and the parental genome is improved and altered. Some of these natural mechanisms include genetic mutations, polyploidy, particularly allopolyploidy (natural hybridizations), chromosomal aberrations and related many inherent molecular mechanisms operative within individual(s). Many of these events have sometimes resulted in “genomic reshuffle” causing expressions of those DNA sequences which were once present in the distant past geological history (millions of years ago). Several such examples are prevalent among plants and animals. Additionally, evolutionary mechanisms have evolved such organisms which are either connecting links between groups and or are unique amalgamated genomes such as Platypus among animals. In the past few decades, some rare plants have shown the presence of a few DNA stretches matching the DNA sequences on the human chromosomes.

Not only from anthropological point of view, but also from homology of DNA sequences we have proved that Homo sapiens arose after hybridization in between two species of Homo. Furthermore, detailed investigations on DNA isolated from the fossil bones (fossilized bone marrow) biologists and biochemists have established modes of origin of Neanderthal and other Homo species including Homo sapiens. Among plants, DNA samples obtained from many fern genera and also among grasses, evolutionary biologists have offered new pathways for the emergence of new and related genera and species.
