Transporters and Plant Osmotic Stress focuses on the potential negative impact of abiotic stresses on plant health and crop yield. The book focuses on the current state of knowledge of the biochemical and molecular regulation of several classes of membrane transporters during different osmotic stresses and their probable mechanisms of operation in plant stress tolerance. The comprehensive discussion presented in this book highlights steps appropriate for mitigating multiple forms of abiotic stresses utilizing transporter proteins. Edited by leading experts and authored by top researchers from around the world, Transporters and Plant Osmotic Stress will be valuable to researchers, academicians, and scientists to enhance their knowledge and inspire further research in the field of transporters with respect to abiotic stress responses. It is complimented by its companion book titled Metal and Nutrient Transporters in Abiotic Stress.

Key Features

  • Focuses exclusively on transporter proteins involved in multiple environmental stresses in plants
