Plant Stress Tolerance Physiological and Molecular Strategies

A. Hemantaranjan (Author)

The book entitled "Plant Stress Tolerance – Physiological and Molecular Strategies" has been especially edited for holistic development of the science of agriculture and crop production under distinctly changing environment. Resource utilization is always overlooked; hence a brief focus on sustainability has been remarkably presented to prove the meaningfulness of this publication. This book brings ingenious applied researches highlighting the major environmental factors coupled with scrupulous strategies in solving abiotic stresses in varied micro and macro agro-climatic conditions , in general, and unfolding the basis for tolerance mechanisms in plant systems, in particular.
