About the book
Plant growth and yield are greatly influenced by abiotic stresses. As the global population is increasing and demand for food is expected to increase, there is a need to reduce yield losses due to various abiotic stresses.
This book aims to provide a detailed view of physiological, biochemical, and molecular bases of stress response and stress tolerance as part of crop improvement programs. It will explore innovative methods for breeding new varieties of major crops with resistance to environmental stresses that limit crop production worldwide. Experts will provide you with basic principles and techniques of plant breeding as well as work done in relation to improving resistance in specific important world food crops.
This book will also explore the mechanisms including stress perception, signal transduction and synthesis of stress-related proteins and other molecules. This book will provide extensive knowledge in each chapter, as well as tables and figures that will illustrate the research findings.
