Title : The place of electrophysiology in sustainable management of rangeland ecosystems using Vetiver in Iran


At present, more than 120 countries of the world use the exceptional and unique features of the Vetiver plant for various purposes such as water and soil protection in agricultural fields, stabilization of the slope of the loose slopes of the river walls, water management, revitalization of the lands along the dams, and mines, reviving polluted lands and salt fields, and recently also used for reviving wetlands. In the investigation of physiological stresses and assessment of abiotic stresses to achieve adaptation relationship in Vetiver plant, enzyme changes (p ≤ 0.05) that are accessible through ion transport in the cell membrane occur. Studying the biochemical mechanisms of external stimuli by plants and converting them into electrical signals, remembering or transmitting these signals, activating mechanical and chemical devices for defense, plants are constantly exposed to a wide range of disturbances that they adapt to complex systems to understand environmental stimuli and understand signals from other cells for coordinated action. As a result, plants produce different types of intracellular and intercellular electrical signals in response to these environmental changes. These electrical signals can be used as a rapid biosensor to monitor the environment, detect environmental effects, direct and control environmental conditions, and use computational methods to explore opportunities. In this context, electrophysiology has become a valuable tool for rapid measurement and alerting rangeland ecosystem managers before obvious symptoms are observed. Decoding the changes and connecting them to all subsequent steps in the responses of the signaling system leads to the development of new and promising tools for early detection and optimal management of rangeland ecosystems.
