Abiotic Stress Adaption in Plants. Physiological, Molecular and Genomic Foundation. 2009. col. illus. 600 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
Due October 2009. - Environmental insults such as extremes of temperature, extremes of water status as well as deteriorating soil conditions pose major threats to agriculture and food security. Employing contemporary tools and techniques from all branches of science, attempts are being made worldwide to understand how plants respond to abiotic stresses with the aim to help manipulate plant performance that will be better suited to withstand these stresses. The book is an attempt to search for possible answers to several basic questions related to plant responses towards abiotic stresses. This book presents view of the general principles of stress perception, signal transduction and regulation of gene expression. Further, chapters in this book analyze not only model systems but extrapolate interpretations obtained from models to crops. It discusses how stress-tolerant crop or model plants have been or are being raised through plant breeding and genetic engineering approaches. Twenty three chapters integrate molecular details with overall plant structure and physiology, in a text-book style, including key references. The book is relevant for use by advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and beginning researchers in the area of stress biology, plant molecular biology, plant physiology, agriculture, biochemistry and environmental biology.
