Prof. Nafees Khan, Department of Botany, Aligarh Muslim University has been elected as Vice President of National Environmental Science Academy (NESA). He was unopposed nominated candidate for this position. This academy is of National level, and the main objective of the Academy is to bring awareness about the environment among the masses by arranging lectures, demonstrations, training programmes, seminars, symposium, conferences, publishing journals, etc.
Prof. Nafees A. Khan is working mainly on understanding the mechanisms of hormonal and nutritional regulation of plant growth with special emphasis on abiotic stress vis-a-vis photosynthetic efficiency and abiotic stress tolerance. The protection of photosynthetic apparatus against abiotic stress (metals, salt, temperature) by manipulating the phytohormones and mineral nutrient status of plant through modulating the components of antioxidant defense has been achieved. Among the detoxifying mechanisms, modulation of phytohormones and mineral nutrients status play important role in maintaining photosynthetic potential under stressful environment. It has also been reported that phytohormones (gibberellic acid, salicylic acid, nitric oxide and ethylene) play the most prominent role in affecting sulfate and nitrate assimilation, and regulation of antioxidant defense system thereby enhancing abiotic stress tolerance. Also, there exists cross-talk between hormones for the modulation of nutrient-use efficiency, source-sink relations and abiotic stress tolerance.
These findings have been reported in Plant Physiology (IF 6.2), Plant, Cell & Environment (IF 6.1), Journal of Experimental Botany (IF 5.6), Frontiers in Plant Science (IF 4.5), Environmental and Experimental Botany (IF 3.7), Plant Physiology and Biochemistry (IF 2.97), Journal of Plant Physiology (IF 2.98), and others.
Prof. Khan has supervised 14 PhD and 05 M. Phil students and has edited 13 books, published.
