Provides an invaluable insight into how the area of plant adaptation to abiotic stresses has progressed through the application of the new technologies. The topics, addressed in up-to-date specific chapters, include effects and responses of plants to stresses caused by such factors as high temperature; low temperature (chilling and freezing); salt; drought; flooding; heavy metals; elevated carbon dioxide and ozone.
