Metal and Nutrient Transporters in Abiotic Stress: Sensing, Signaling and Trafficking focuses on the different forms of environmental stressors relating to heavy metal/metalloid and nutrient deficiency and their potential to inflict major damages to crop plant productivity. The book presents the current state of knowledge of the biochemical and molecular regulation of several classes of membrane transporters during different stresses, along with their probable mechanisms of operation in plant stress tolerance. The exhaustive discussion presented in this book will help mitigate multiple forms of stresses by utilizing transporter proteins.

Edited by leading experts and with a global team of contributors, this book will further stimulate research in the field of transporter proteins and foster further interests for researchers, academicians and scientists worldwide.

Key Features

  • Focuses exclusively on the transporter proteins involved in multiple environmental stresses in plants
  • Explains exploiting transporters in crop improvement programs through transgenic technology
  • Serves as an important source of information in the field of abiotic stress


Researchers, academicians and scientists to enhance their knowledge in the field of abiotic stress with respect to transporter proteins in plants
