A fully revised review of the latest research in molecularbasis of plant abiotic stress response and adaptation
Abiotic stressors are non-living environmental stressors thatcan have a negative impact on a plants ability to grow and thrivein a given environment. Stressors can range from temperature stress(both extreme heat and extreme cold) water stress, aridity,salinity among others. This book explores the full gamut of plantabiotic stressors and plants molecular responses and adaptations toadverse environmental conditions.
The new edition of Plant Abiotic Stress providesup-to-date coverage of the latest research advances in plantabiotic stress adaptation, with special emphasis on the associatedand integrative aspects of physiology, signaling, andmolecular-genetics. Since the last edition, major advances inwhole genome analysis have revealed previously unknown linkagesbetween genes, genomes, and phenotypes, and new biological and–omics approaches have elucidated previously unknown cellularmechanisms underlying stress tolerance.
Chapters are organized by topic, but highlight processes thatare integrative among diverse stress responses. As with the firstedition, Plant Abiotic Stress will have broad appeal toscientists in fields of applied agriculture, ecology, plantsciences, and biology.
