Description

The development of molecular and biotechnological tools to further our understanding of plant responses to environmental stresses that limit or threaten agricultural productivity worldwide, has led to an ability to modify responses of important crop plants to such stresses. Within this context, this book addresses the state-of-the-art in the use of transgenic plants for evaluating the importance of specific stress tolerances in plant growth and development. The articles are organized into the following topics: high temperature stress; low temperature stress; salinity stress; drought/water stress; environmental stress signal transduction; and oxidative and heavy metal stress. The contributions in each of these areas offer an overview of research progress and suggest future research directions.show more
