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 book is divided into two sections namely: synthesis and properties of herbicides and herbicidal control of weeds. Chapters 1 to 11 deal with the study of different synthetic pathways of certain herbicides and the physical and chemical properties of other synthesized herbicides. The other 14 chapters (12-25) discussed the different methods by which each herbicide controls specific weed population. The overall purpose of the book, is to show properties and characterization of herbicides, the physical and chemical properties of selected types of herbicides, and the influence of certain herbicides on soil physical and chemical properties on microflora. In addition, an evaluation of the degree of contamination of either soils and/or crops by herbicides is discussed alongside an investigation into the performance and photochemistry of herbicides and the fate of excess herbicides in soils and field crops.
