Algae, generally held as the principal primary producers of aquatic systems, inhabit all
conceivable habitats. They have great ability to cope with a harsh environment, e.g.
extremely high and low temperatures, suboptimal and supraoptimal light intensities,
low availability of essential nutrients and other resources, and high concentrations of toxic
chemicals, etc. A multitude of physiological, biochemical, and molecular strategies enable
them to survive and grow in stressful habitats. This book presents a critical account of
various mechanisms of stress tolerance in algae, many of which may occur in microbes and
plants as well.
