Priming-Mediated Stress and Cross-Stress Tolerance in Crop Plants provides the latest, in-depth understanding of the molecular mechanisms associated with the development of stress and cross-stress tolerance in plants. Plants growing under field conditions are constantly exposed, either sequentially or simultaneously, to many abiotic or biotic stress factors. But they have developed unique strategies to respond to ever-changing environmental conditions, enabling them to monitor their surroundings and adjust their metabolic systems to maintain homeostasis. Recently, priming mediated stress and cross-stress tolerance (i.e. greater tolerance to a second stronger stress after exposure to a different, milder primary stress) has attracted considerable interest with the scientific community as a potential means of stress management and for producing stress-resistant crops to aid with global food security.
Priming-Mediated Stress and Cross-Stress Tolerance in Crop Plants comprehensively reviews the physiological, biochemical and molecular basis of these phenomena, allowing researchers to develop strategies to enhance crop productivity under stressful conditions and to better utilize natural resources. The book is a valuable asset for plant and agriculture scientists in corporate or government environments, as well as educators and advanced students looking to promote future research into plant stress tolerance.
