About this book

Apart from biotic stress caused by plant pathogens, there are a number of abiotic stresses such as extremes in temperature, drought, salinity, heavy metals and radiation which all have detrimental effects on plant growth and yield. This volume contains up-to-date reviews discussing all relevant topics in abiotic stress signaling of plants. Topical reviews were prepared by selected experts and contain an introduction, discussion of the state of the art and important future tasks.


Contents
