Plant Abiotic Stress
edited by Matthew A. Jenks

Plant Abiotic Stress focuses on stress caused by the inanimate components of the environment associated with climate, edaphic and physiographic factors that substantially limit plant growth and survival.

Plant Abiotic Stress addresses:

  • the high degree to which plant responses to quite diverse forms of environmental stress are interconnected
  • describes the ways in which the plant utilizes and integrates common signals
  • subsequent pathways to cope with less favorabe conditions
