Current  trends in population growth suggest that global food production is  unlikely to meet future demands under projected climate change scenarios  unless the pace of plant improvement is accelerated. Plant production  is facing many challenges due to changing environmental conditions and  the growing demand for new plant-derived materials. These challenges  come at a time when plant science is making significant progress in  understanding the basic processes of plant growth and development. Major  abiotic stresses like drought, heat, cold and salinity often cause a  range of morphological, physiological, biochemical, and molecular  changes affecting plant growth, development, and productivity; so  sustainable food production poses a serious challenge to much of the  world, particularly in emerging countries. This underscores the urgent  need to find better ways to translate new advances in plant science into  concrete successes in agricultural production. In order to overcome the  negative effects of abiotic stress and to maintain food security in the  face of these challenges, new, improved, and resilient plant varieties,  contemporary breeding techniques, and a deep understanding of the  mechanisms for offsetting harmful climate change are undoubtedly  necessary. In this context, Improvement of Plant Production in the Era of Climate Change is  a guide to the most advanced techniques that help in understanding  plant response to abiotic stress, leading to new horizons and the  strategy for the current translation studies application to overall  solution to create a powerful production and crop improvement in such an  adverse environment.


  • Provides  a state-of-the-art description of the physiological, biochemical, and  molecular-level understanding of abiotic stress in plants
  • Courses  taught in universities from basics to advanced level in field of plant  physiology, molecular genetics, and bioinformatics will use this book
  • Focuses  on climatic extremes and their management for plant protection and  production, which is great threat to future generation and food security
  • Understanding  of new techniques pointed out in this book will open the possibility of  genetic engineering in crop plants with the concomitant improved stress  tolerance
  • Addressing factors that are threatening future food production and providing potential solutions to these factors
  • Written  by a diverse group of internationally famed scholars, this book adds  new horizons in the field of abiotic stress tolerance
