Abiotic Stress Responses in Plants: Metabolism, Productivity by Parvaiz Ahmad,M.N.V. Prasad

By Parvaiz Ahmad,M.N.V. Prasad

Abiotic tension reason alterations in soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and is chargeable for lowered yield in different significant crops.  hence, the topic of abiotic tension reaction in crops - metabolism, productiveness and sustainability - is gaining huge importance within the modern international. Abiotic pressure is a vital part of “climate change,” a posh phenomenon with a variety of unpredictable affects at the surroundings. lengthy publicity to these abiotic stresses leads to altered metabolism and harm to biomolecules. vegetation evolve safety mechanisms to tolerate these stresses by means of upregulation of osmolytes, osmoprotectants, and enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants, and so on. This quantity offers with abiotic stress-induced morphological and anatomical alterations, abberations in metabolism, options and techniques to extend salt tolerance, coping with the drought rigidity, sustainable fruit construction and postharvest rigidity treatments,  position of glutathione reductase, flavonoids as antioxidants in crops, the function of salicylic acid and trehalose in vegetation, stress-induced flowering.  The function of soil natural topic in mineral meals and fatty acid profile in accordance with heavy steel pressure also are handled. Proteomic markers for oxidative rigidity as a brand new instruments for reactive oxygen species and photosynthesis learn, abscisic acid signaling in crops are lined with selected examples. tension responsive genes and gene items together with expressed proteins which are implicated in conferring tolerance to the plant are awarded. therefore, this quantity may offers the reader with a large spectrum of knowledge together with key references and with lots of illustrations and tables.


Dr. Parvaiz is Assistant Professor in Botany at A.S. collage, Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India. He has accomplished his post-graduation in Botany in 2000 from Jamia Hamdard New Delhi India. After his Ph.D from the Indian Institute of expertise (IIT) Delhi, India in 2007 he joined the foreign Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, New Delhi. He has released greater than 20 examine papers in peer reviewed journals and four ebook chapters. He has additionally edited a quantity that's in press with Studium Press Pvt. India Ltd., New Delhi, India. Dr. Parvaiz is actively engaged in learning the molecular and physio-biochemical responses of alternative vegetation (mulberry, pea, Indian mustard) less than environmental stress.


Prof. M.N.V. Prasad is a Professor within the division of Plant Sciences on the college of Hyderabad, India. He bought B.Sc. (1973) and M.Sc. (1975) levels from Andhra collage, India, and the Ph.D. measure (1979) in botany from the college of Lucknow, India. Prasad has released 216 articles in peer reviewed journals and eighty two ebook chapters and convention complaints within the wide quarter of  environmental botany and heavy steel pressure in crops. he's the writer, co-author, editor, or co-editor for 8 books. he's the recipient of  Pitamber Pant nationwide setting Fellowship  of  2007 presented via the Ministry of atmosphere and Forests, govt of India.
