About this book

Signal Crosstalk in Plant Stress Responses focuses on current findings on signal crosstalk between abiotic and biotic stresses, including information on drought, cold, and salt stress and pathogen infection. Divided into seven chapters on critical topics in the field, the book is written by an international team of expert authors. The book is aimed at plant scientists, agronomists, and horticulturalists, as well as students.

Expert researchers examine the ways in which plants coordinate and prioritize their responses to multiple stresses … .Contributors describe the most current research in this important field. (Book News, December 2009)
