Environmental insults such as extremes of temperature, extremes of water status as well as deteriorating soil conditions pose major threats to agriculture and food security. Employing contemporary tools and techniques from all branches of science, attempts are being made worldwide to understand how plants respond abiotic stresses with the aim to help manipulate plant performance that will better suited to withstand these stress conditions. The present book on abiotic stress is an attempt to search for possible answers to several basic questions related plant responses towards abiotic stresses. This book presents a holistic view of general principles of stress perception, signal transduction and regulation of le expression. Further, chapters in this book analyze not only model systems but extrapolate interpretations obtained from models to crops. Lastly, we discuss how stress-tolerant model plants or crops have been or are being raised through plant breeding and genetic engineering approaches. This book serves as a complete package on the basics and applications for abiotic stress response pathways in plants. Twenty three chapters, presented in a text-book style, integrate molecular ails with overall plant structure and physiology. It is designed for use by advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and beginning researchers he area of stress biology, plant molecular biology, plant physiology, agriculture, chemistry, environmental biology and biotechnology.
