A major, worldwide threat to agricultural productivity is undoubtedly due to environments with stressful factors, including drought, salinity, waterlogging, extreme temperatures, and non-optimal levels of mineral nutrients. Based on contributions presented at the International Conference on Biosaline Agriculture and High Salinity Tolerance, held in Gammarth, Tunisia, in November 2006, this book reviews the current state of knowledge in biosaline agriculture and high salinity tolerance in plants. It mainly focuses on the biotic approach to economically utilize the stress-prone areas by growing resistant plants.
This volume is organized into three sections: molecular biology, physiology and biochemistry, and ecology. It adopts a systematic approach to uncover plant responses to various ecological factors at physiological and molecular levels. The book will be of interest to students, researchers and professionals in plant physiology, molecular biology, biotechnology, agriculture, soil science, and environmental biology.
