Plant Perspectives to Global Climate Changes: Developing Climate-Resilient Plants reviews and integrates currently available information on the impact of the environment on functional and adaptive features of plants from the molecular, biochemical and physiological perspectives to the whole plant level. The book also provides a direction towards implementation of programs and practices that will enable sustainable production of crops resilient to climatic alterations. This book will be beneficial to academics and researchers working on stress physiology, stress proteins, genomics, proteomics, genetic engineering, and other fields of plant physiology. Advancing ecophysiological understanding and approaches to enhance plant responses to new environmental conditions is critical to developing meaningful high-throughput phenotyping tools and maintaining humankind’s supply of goods and services as global climate change intensifies.

Key Features

  • Illustrates the central role for plant ecophysiology in applying basic research to address current and future challenges for humans
  • Brings together global leaders working in the area of plant-environment interactions and shares research findings
  • Presents current scenarios and future plans of action for the management of stresses through various approaches


Researchers and academics in the fields of stress physiology, stress proteins, genomics, proteomics, genetic engineering and other fields of plant physiology
