The dynamic and expanding knowledge of environmental stresses and their effects on plants and crops have resulted in the compilation of a large volume of information in the last ten years since the publication of the second edition of this book. With 90 percent new material and a new organization that reflects the increased knowledge base, this new 3rd edition, like the first two, provides comprehensive and complete coverage of the issues on stress imposed on plants and crops.
... some excellent summaries of specific topics.... ... this book contains much useful information and can be dipped into to source specific facts ...

"This work is of considerable scientific value and constitutes an important contribution to scientific literature on the complex relationship between the environment and plants."
- Advances in Horticultural Science
"Pessarakli has done a good job in maintaining high quality throughout the book. . . . a valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in the effect of environmental stresses (especially salinity and water stress) on the physiology and quality of crop plants."
". . . a good source of information for soil scientists, plant physiologists, agronomists, foresters, environmental scientists, as well as teachers and students in agricultural disciplines."
- Biologia Plantarum
"Over 100 authors from 25 countries contribute to this handbook treating the various aspects of plant stress from the soil to the atmosphere. It is the second edition of the handbook with 37 new chapters and 19 revised chapters also contained in the first edition.... ... Since the book contains a broad spectrum of information, one can recommend it primarily to plant physiologists engaged in research and teaching. Also students of biology and agriculture will appreciate the summarizing chapters presented by so many different authors."
- Journal of Plant Physiology
"... the Second Edition of the 'Handbook of Plant and Crop Stress' in comparison with the first edition has been greatly enlarged. ... an excellent state-of-the art publication ... and [a] ... unique comprehensive guide."
