Abiotic Stresses in Crop Plants Hardback
Based on the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of tolerance of commonly encountered abiotic stresses in nature, this book covers the effect of increasing temperature, flood, drought, salinity, ozone and heavy metals such as arsenic and cadmium on plants.
It discusses how these abiotic stresses can be managed in a cost-effective and eco-friendly way by utilising the alleviating mechanisms of microbes.
Written in three sections, it considers each stress and their alleviation methods in detail, providing a rounded and vital resource on the subject for researchers and students of crop stress, management and biology.
