Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The field of plant stress biology has evolved significantly in recent years. Understanding the molecular basis of plant responses to abiotic stressors, such as extreme heat, cold, drought, and salinity, are now more important than ever. Plant Abiotic Stress, Second Edition provides up-to-date coverage of the latest research advances in plant abiotic stress adaptation, with special emphasis on the associated and integrative aspects of physiology, signaling, and molecular-genetics.

Plant Abiotic Stress, Second Edition more thoroughly explores the recently revealed linkages between genes, genomes, and phenotypes made possible by whole genome analysis. Chapters explore the cellular mechanisms underlying stress tolerance that new biological and –omics technologies have unlocked.

Building on the foundations of the previous edition, but thoroughly updated to reflect the current state of the field, Plant Abiotic Stress, Second Edition, is an essential reference for all plant and crop scientists.

  • Reviews the latest research on plants’ response to a wide range of abiotic stressors, including drought, flooding, temperature, and salinity
  • Expanded coverage to reflect the latest research advances in whole genome analysis
  • New chapter reviewing the impacts of epigenetics on abiotic stress tolerance
  • Written by a global team of leading researchers

Synopsis:

A fully revised review of the latest research in molecular basis of plant abiotic stress response and adaptation

Abiotic stressors are non-living environmental stressors that can have a negative impact on a plants ability to grow and thrive in 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 plant abiotic stressors and plants molecular responses and adaptations to adverse environmental conditions.

The new edition of Plant Abiotic Stress provides up-to-date coverage of the latest research advances in plant abiotic stress adaptation, with special emphasis on the associated and integrative aspects of physiology, signaling, and molecular-genetics.  Since the last edition, major advances in whole genome analysis have revealed previously unknown linkages between genes, genomes, and phenotypes, and new biological and –omics approaches have elucidated previously unknown cellular mechanisms underlying stress tolerance.

Chapters are organized by topic, but highlight processes that are integrative among diverse stress responses. As with the first edition, Plant Abiotic Stress will have broad appeal to scientists in fields of applied agriculture, ecology, plant sciences, and biology.
