Diah Ratnadewi

Dr Diah Ratnadewi is an academic member of the Department of Biology, Faculty of Math & Natural Sciences, at the Bogor Agricultural University. Her scientific works focuses on Plant Physiology, particularly in Plant Cells Growth and Development and Cells/Tissue Cultures for their secondary metabolites, as well as Genetic basis of plant tolerance to abiotic stresses. She got her doctorate degree from The University of Montpellier II in France in 1987 and took a postdoctoral research program in Plant Biotechnology Laboratory which is chaired by Prof Dr Ralf Reski in Albert-Ludwig University of Freiburg, during 2002-2004. Her works were related with the functional genes of plant tolerance to abiotic stresses. She published several peer-reviewed articles in international journals, and is frequently invited to review many publication manuscripts and research proposals. In 2017, she successfully published one chapter on Alkaloids in Plant Cell Cultures, which is part of the book entitled “Alkaloids-Alternatives in Synthesis, Modifications and Application” by InTechOpen. As academician, she gives intensive supervision to students, undergraduate as well as master and doctoral levels. She manages several academic and scientific collaborations on the sidelines of her time.

Plant Growth and Regulation - Alterations to Sustain Unfavorable Conditions consists of five chapters written by scientists from different parts of the world, who are experts in their respective focuses of research. The topics cover the physical growth and physiological and genetic alterations in plants, particularly under environmental stress conditions. The storyline of this book starts from the plant community, followed by cellular and ultrastructural phenomenes occurring within the plant in its interaction with the environment, and ends with elucidation of chloroplast's DNAs, their transfer to the nucleus, and the genetic engineering technology applicable for plant adaptation to changing environmental conditions. This book is aimed at attracting the attention of students, teachers, as well as scientists who have a similar focus of study or interest. It contains advanced studies in the respective chapters.
