Elevated carbon dioxide impacts on bioactive compounds or nutraceuticals properties of medicinal plants
Rupali Sharma, Neeraj Prajapati and Hukum Singh
Climate change is a very well-known threat in today's world. The few scientific communities at worldwide stated that the future climate change scenario could influence the chemical composition, quality, and quantity of nutraceuticals derived from medicinal plants or crops. However, it is largely unclear about climate change effects on secondary chemicals or nutraceuticals production in medicinal plants. Elsewhere this perspective has been given renewed attention recently. In India, studies on the possible impact of climate change on growth behavior and quality and quantity of bioactive compounds or nutraceuticals of medicinal plants are severely lacking. Therefore, an effort was made to make a valuable document on possible impacts of climate change on quality bioactive compounds or nutraceuticals of medicinal plants. This effort can be useful to researchers, medical practitioners, the pharmaceutical industry and medicinal plant growers in the upcoming future climate change scenario.
