Challenges and Prospective of Plant Abiotic Stress (In 2 Volumes)

Ratna Kumar Pasala (Editor) Kiran Bhagat (Editor) Yogeshwar Singh (Editor)

Abiotic stress is the foremost factor adversely affecting crop growth and productivity globally. It cause changes in soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and is responsible for reduction in yield potential in many crops. Abiotic stresses provoke complex cellular responses that have been elucidated by progresses made in exploring and understanding plant abiotic responses at the whole-plant, physiological, biochemical, cellular and molecular levels. Plants respond to these environmental challenges through a number of homeostatic mechanisms that maintain the water balance and the integrity of tissues. Salinity levied short-term osmotic and long-term ionic stresses induces cellular adjustment associated with a perceptive reform of cell structure and metabolism. Owing to the significance of diverse receptor proteins in signal transduction, modulation of abiotic stress responsive receptors would be a one of new method for crop improvement. Though, there are many books available in the market on abiotic stress in plants, we tried our best to boost up the knowledge on abiotic stress in plants by embracing all vital aspects associated to abiotic stress with the help of getting chapters from experts of abiotic stress research and brought them all in coherent way. The book will bring together a series of chapters that provide scientific insights to conceivable implications of projected upsurge in abiotic stress under climate changes scenario, and a discussion of option for adaptive and alleviative management.

In this book ‘Abiotic Stress: Challenges and Prospects, we narrowed our thematic areas to most relevant and important after series of discussions and invited 18 chapters written by around 60 experts in the field of plant tolerance to abiotic stress, signal perception, transcription factors, proteomic, system biology approaches and bio-engineering of osmolytes. The chapters cover extensively about various aspects of abiotic stresses with in depth discussion on basic approaches of abiotic stresses, principles coupled with that and management strategies in the era of climate change. Efforts are made to cover all the important aspects of the objective of the book. Volume-I of this book contains 9 chapters which accentuates on specific research field related to abiotic stress. Volume-II of this book also contains 9 chapters which focus mainly on specific crops.

The book is also suitably illustrated with colour photographs, wherever necessary, important references to each subject have been cited for detailed reading. The authors acknowledge the compilation of chapters using scattered information that is available in public domain in the form of research papers and in relevant websites.
