Synopses & Reviews
Plant hormone signaling plays an important role in many physiological and developmental processes including stress response. With the advent of new post-genomic molecular techniques the potential for increasing our understanding of the impact of hormone signaling on gene expression and adaptive processes has never been higher. Unlocking the molecular underpinnings of these promises show great promise for the development of new plant biotechnologies and improved crop varieties. Plant Hormone Signaling Under Stress brings together the latest advances as well as the work being done to apply these findings more practically to plant and crop science.
Plant Hormone Signaling under Stress: A Functional Genomic Frontier explores the role that signal pathways and transduction have in gene expression, plant adaptation, and stress response. Chapters look both broadly at stress environments and others explore the response to specific abiotic stressors. The book also contains several chapters that look to translate basic findings into sustainable and biotechnological advances.
