Drought, flooding, high or low temperatures, toxicity and salinity can all hamper plant growth. Such adverse stresses on plants are known as abiotic stresses. Improving Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Plants explains the physiological and molecular mechanisms plants naturally exhibit to withstand abiotic stresses and outlines the potential for biotechnological treatments to enhance plant tolerance to such conditions. Synthesising developments in plant stress biology, the book offers strategies that use breeding, genomic, molecular and physiological approaches that hold the potential to develop resilient plants and improve crop productivity worldwide.


  • Comprehensively explains molecular and physiological mechanism of multiple abiotic stress tolerance in plants

  • Discusses recent advancements in crop abiotic stress tolerance mechanism and highlights strategies to develop abiotic stress tolerant genotypes for sustainability

  • Stimulates synthesis of information for plant stress biology for biotechnological applications

  • Presents essential information for large scale breeding and agricultural biotechnological programs for crop improvement


Written by a team of expert scientists, this book benefits researchers in the field of plant stress biology and is essential reading for graduate students and researchers generating stress tolerant crops through genetic engineering and plant breeding. It appeals to individuals developing sustainable agriculture through biotechnological applications.
