Physiology and Molecular Biology of Stress Tolerance in Plants
Edited by Madhava Rao, K.V.; Raghavendra, A.S.; Janardhan Reddy, K.
Today, biologists all over the world speak the same scientific language of molecular biology
and use the same molecular tools. More interest and attention is given to molecular biology of abiotic
stress tolerance and modes of installing better tolerant mechanisms in crop plants. These studies make
plants capable of sustaining their yields even under stress conditions. Further, the information gained may
form the basis for its application in biotechnology and bioinformatics. This book does not only review the
current status in the physiology and molecular biology of stress tolerance and its improvement in plants but
will also trigger further research on this exciting topic.
