This book is based to a great extent on the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of tolerance of commonly encountered abiotic stresses in nature. This book will deal with increasing temperature, water, salinity, and heavy metals and ozone, and how these abiotic stresses can be managed by microbes through their alleviation mechanisms.

Water stress includes both drought and flooding. 1st. This book supplies extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter, as well as tables and figures that illustrate the research findings. Abiotic Stresses is divided into two sections. In the first section, you will find: the general principles of breeding crops for stress resistanceReviews: 1.

"This book is not intended to cover all known abiotic stresses or every possible technique used to understand plant tolerance but, instead, to describe some of the widely used approaches to addressing such major abiotic stresses as drought, salinity, extreme temperature, cold, light, calcareous soils, excessive irradiation, ozone, ultraviolet radiation, and flooding, and to Cited by:   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. Abiotic stress cause changes in soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and is responsible for reduced yield in several major crops.

Therefore, the subject of abiotic stress response in plants - metabolism, productivity and sustainability - is gaining considerable significance in the contemporary world. Based on the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of tolerance of commonly encountered abiotic stresses in nature, this book covers the effect of increasing temperature, flood, drought, salinity, ozone and heavy metals such as arsenic and cadmium on plants.

Plants defense against abiotic stress starts within their roots [3], and a well-developed root system is essential to provide water uptake [12].The ability of plants to change their root anatomy.

This book on abiotic stress attempts to search for possible answers to several basic questions related to plant responses towards abiotic stresses.

Presented in this book is a holistic view of the general principles of stress perception, signal transduction and regulation of gene expression. The present book on abiotic stress is an attempt to search for possible answers to several basic questions related to plant responses towards abiotic stresses.

This book presents a holistic view of the general principles of stress perception, signal transduction and regulation of gene expression. It is divided into 14 chapters, written by eminent experts from around the globe and highlighting the effects of plant stress (biotic and abiotic) on the photosynthetic apparatus, metabolites, programmed cell death, germination etc.

Understanding abiotic stress responses in plants is critical for the development of new varieties of crops, which are better adapted to harsh climate conditions. The new book by the well-known editor team Narendra Tuteja and Sarvajeet Gill provides a comprehensive overview on the molecular basis of plant responses to external stress like drought or heavy metals, to aid in the engineering of.

Description Abiotic stresses in plants EPUB

It highlights new insights gained from the integration of omics datasets and identifies remaining gaps in our knowledge, outlining additional focus areas for future crop improvement research.

The present book on abiotic stress is an attempt to search for possible answers to several basic questions related to plant responses towards abiotic stresses. Abiotic Stress Adaptation in Plants presents a holistic view of the general principles of stress perception, signal transduction and regulation of gene Range: £ - £ However, abiotic stresses are responsible for huge losses in crop production every year.

So, there is a need to develop improved stress-tolerant varieties of important crop plants to ensure future food security. Transcription factors play a central role in the regulation of the molecular mechanisms that control the plant response to abiotic stress.

Water Stress.

Details Abiotic stresses in plants EPUB

One of the most important abiotic stresses affecting plants is water stress. A plant requires a certain amount of water for its optimal survival; too much water (flooding stress) can cause plant cells to swell and burst; whereas drought stress (too little water) can cause the plant to dry up, a condition called desiccation.

Abiotic stresses such as drought, flooding, high or low temperatures, metal toxicity and salinity can hamper plant growth and : M. Iqbal R. Khan, Amarjeet Singh, Péter Poór. This Special Issue of Plants will thus present research on the impacts of abiotic stresses, and namely due to climate change, which can cause negative effects on plant growth and development.

Studies focusing on environmental stress perception, signaling, and mechanistic response at the cellular, biochemical, physiological, tissue, organ or.

In this book, Osmoprotectant-mediated abiotic stress tolerance in plants: recent advances and future perspectives, we present a collection of 16 chapters written by leading experts engaged with compatible solute-induced abiotic stress tolerance in plants. The main objective of this volume is to promote the important roles of these compatible Seller Rating: % positive.

Plants live in constantly changing environments that are often unfavorable or stressful for growth and development. These adverse environmental conditions include biotic stress, such as pathogen infection and herbivore attack, and abiotic stress, such as drought, heat, cold, nutrient deficiency, and excess of salt or toxic metals like aluminum, arsenate, and cadmium in the soil.

The volume deals with other aspect (s) of metabolic activities of plants under abiotic stress. This book discusses techniques for improving yield potential and adaptiveness to unfavorable environmental conditions. This book also addresses how knowledge of the changes in physiological mechanisms can contribute in understanding the yield structure under abiotic stress.
