By N.K. Srinivasa Rao,K.S. Shivashankara,R.H. Laxman

This booklet brings jointly contemporary advances within the sector of abiotic tension tolerance in numerous greens, fruit plants, plantation plants and tuber plants. the most demanding situations to bettering the productiveness of horticultural plants are the different sorts of abiotic stresses in general attributable to weather switch on the neighborhood and international point. warmth, drought, chilly and salinity are the most important abiotic stresses that adversely impact progress and productiveness and will set off a chain of morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular alterations in numerous horticultural crops. 
To date, there aren't any books overlaying horticultural crop-specific abiotic rigidity tolerance mechanisms and their administration. Addressing that hole, the ebook is split into 2 sections, the 1st of which highlights fresh advances within the common features of abiotic tension tolerance just like the position of hormones, reactive oxygen species, seed remedies, molecular mechanisms of warmth tolerance and heavy steel toxicity, whereas the second one makes a speciality of the abiotic tension tolerance mechanisms of assorted greens, fruit plants, plantation vegetation and tuber vegetation. It comprises finished discussions of fruit plants like mango, grapes, banana, litchi and arid area end result; greens vegetation like tomato, capsicum, onion and tuber vegetation; and plantation vegetation like coconut, areca nut, oil palm and black pepper. one of the suggestions for plant tension survival, examples of either avoidance and tolerance proper to specific plants are tested intimately, supported by way of chosen entire case stories of development. As such, the booklet deals a invaluable source suited to scientists and graduate scholars operating within the fields of crop development, genetic engineering, and the abiotic tension tolerance of horticultural crops.
