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.
Introduction * Molecular Responses of Higher Plants to Dehydration * Abscisic Acid Signalling * Plant Responses to Heat Stress * Sensors of Abiotic Stress in Synechocystis * Oxidative Stress Signalling * Signal Transduction in Plant Cold Acclimation * Heavy Metal Signalling in Plants: Linking Cellular and Organismic Responses * Molecular Genetics of Genotoxic Stress Signalling in Plants * Plant Salt Tolerance * Transcriptome Analysis in Abiotic Stress Conditions in Higher Plants.
