Gain a better understanding of the genetic and physiological bases of stress response and stress tolerance as part of crop improvement programs

Abiotic Stresses: Plant Resistance Through Breeding and Molecular Approaches explores innovative methods for breeding new varieties of major crops with resistance to environmental stresses that limit crop production worldwide. Experts provide you with basic principles and techniques of plant breeding as well as work done in relation to improving resistance in specific important world food crops. This book supplies extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter, as well as tables and figures that illustrate the research findings.

Abiotic Stresses is divided into two sections. In the first section, you will find:
the general principles of breeding crops for stress resistance
genetic engineering and molecular biology procedures for crop improvement for stress environments
data on genome mapping and its implications for improving stress resistance in plants
information about breeding for resistance/tolerance to salinity, drought, flooding, metals, low nutrient availability, high/low temperatures
The second section of this timely resource focuses on the efforts of acknowledged specialists who concentrated their efforts on important individual crops, such as: wheat
barley
rice
maize
oilseed crops
cotton
tomato
This book fills a niche and interface in the available literature as it deals with all of the major stresses from a perspective of crop breeding, covering the latest advances in molecular breeding technology. Abiotic Stresses will help scientists and academics in botany, plant breeding, plant environmental stress studies, agriculture, and horticulture modify and improve breeding programs globally.
