Mohammed Nagib Hasaneen

Professor, Head of Botany Department

Prof. Dr. Mohammed Naguib Abd El-Ghany Hasaneen was born on January 28th 1953. He received his Bachelor of Science (Botany) Honours on Mansoura University, Egypt in 1973, was awarded Master of Science in Plant Physiology in 1978, and received his PhD degree in the same field in 1982. From 1975 to 2006 he has gone through being an appointed demonstrator, assistant lecturer, lecturer, assistant professor to being a professor of Plant Physiology and the Head of Botany Department. He has also been appointed as an external examiner to numerous MSc and PhD theses as well as a reviewer for several highly ranked scientific journals, including American Journal of Environment and Pollution, Pakistan Journal of Cytology and Molecular Biology and Indian Journal of Biological Sciences. His research efforts were directed towards various aspects of growth and metabolism of plants and during the last two decades he became interested in physiological, biochemical and molecular mechanisms, associated with tolerance of crop plants to environmental stress, and in Biotechnology, with particular emphasis on salinity, drought, water logging, chilling, herbicides and production of biopolymers. So far he has published 56 papers in national and international journals in the fields of Plant Physiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Herbicides, Molecular Biology and Biomaterials.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Mohammed Nagib Hasaneen

This volume contains two sections: Mechanisms of herbicidal action (chapters 1-4) and Mode of action of selected herbicides on controlling diseased, weed growth and productivity and/or growth and development of field crops (chapters 5-10). Topics by chapters are: molecular mechanism of action, immunosensors , laboratory studies, molecular modeling, weed resistance, community response, use of herbicides in biotech culture, gene flow, herbicides and risk, herbicides persistence. These recurring themes reinforce my view, held over a very long time, that experience with one crop or problem can sometimes be relevant, often to an unexpected extent, to an apparently dissimilar situation in a different crop. I hope that readers interested in herbicides and pesticides will be satisfied with all the chapters in the book as its content might be of interest and value to them in the future.
