Abiotic Stresses and Plant Productivity

P C Ram (Editor) G S Chaturvedi (Editor)
Synopsis To keep pace with the recent developments in the scientific world is very difficult when one wishes to put them on record in the form of a book. Undeterred with this notion, however, we have tried to collect and synthesize the available updated information on stress tolerance and crop productivity through various esteemed colleagues and experts in their respective research fields. The book is arranged in eleven chapters each dealing with plant adaptation and productivity under different stress environments. Main focus has been towards physiological and molecular approaches for stress tolerance leading to higher productivity.

Nutrients being the back bone of production system are adversely affected by the stress environments causing either toxicity or deficiency disorders. The crop productivity, therefore, is adversely affected and sometimes total crop failure is the consequence. A couple of chapters are dealing with plant nutrition under stress environments. Heavy metals pollution especially in vegetables and cereals is of great concern to the scientific community because of its severe consequences in human health hazards.

Physiological and biochemical traits associated with tolerance to and susceptibility for different types of stresses namely-salinity, drought, submergence and waterlogging have been discussed in several chapters. Conventional and molecular breeding tools and other management approaches for enhancing tolerance and adaptation to different stresses have been the basic theme of the book. The book is a synthesis of recent developments in the field of stress physiology and molecular biology with special reference to crop productivity.
