Leaf senescence is highly complex and regulated process. In the last two decade, the main focus of research has been on expression of senescence associates genes (SAGs) as well as on the identification of senescence mutants. Analysis of these is to expand our understanding of the processes by which senescence functions. Presently the advances in genomics are providing scientists with a amazing array of tools for the identification and functional analysis of the genes and pathways involved in senescence. In this review, we have given general idea about leaf senescence process.
