Plant Metabolites and Regulation Under Environmental Stress presents the latest research on both primary and secondary metabolites. The book sheds light on the metabolic pathways of primary and secondary metabolites, the role of these metabolites in plants, and the environmental impact on the regulation of these metabolites.

Plant Metabolites and Regulation Under Environmental Stress is a practical reference aiding researchers to better understand the role of plant metabolites in stress tolerance by including content on both primary and secondary metabolites in one comprehensive volume.

Key Features

  • Highlights new advances in understanding plant metabolism
  • Features 17 protocols with methods for analysis of important plant secondary metabolites
  • Covered topics include environmental adaptations and plant metabolites, plant metabolites and breeding, plant microbiome and metabolites, and plant metabolism under non-stress conditions


Graduate students and researchers in Plant Sciences, Plant Biochemistry, Plant Metabolism, Plant Molecular Biology, Plant Ecophysiology as well as those in Crop Science and Environmental Science
