The world population has increased dramatically in the past century, generating a concern for progressive and sustainable food production. It is expected to further increase by 1.3 billion in 2030 and by 2.5 billion in 2050, reaching 9.7 billion. To provide food security to this growing population, the world food production may need to increase by 60-110%. Biotic and abiotic stresses are major threat to plant growth and halt them from reaching their full genetic potential and ultimately limiting their productivity. High yield varieties are confronted by various stresses which lead to huge loss in production and productivity. Understanding the mechanisms involved in the response of plants to adverse environmental conditions is the first step in the generation of crops with higher tolerance to these stresses. This book provides a broad overview of biotic and abiotic stresses, their mechanisms and different strategies to improve stress tolerance in crop plants.
The book provides discussion on following topics:
? Reactive oxygen species: generation, scavenging, and their role in cell signalling in plants.
? Calcium mediated pathogen defence system
? Transcription factors in abiotic stress tolerance
? MAPK signalling modules in stress
? Plant hormones and stress
? Plant stress regulation
? Salinity stress in plants
? Recent advances in Populus euphratica in relation to salinity stress
? Chilling stress tolerance in plants: physiology and mechanisms
? Heat stress response in plants
? Drought tolerance in crops
? Aluminium stress in crop plants
? An insight into plant growth and metabolism in relation to hexavalent chromium
? Waterlogging stress: an overview
? Anthropogenic induced stress and its impact on plants
? Breeding for abiotic stress tolerance in crop plants
? Breeding for resistance to biotic stresses in plants
? Transgenic approaches for abiotic stress tolerance in plants
? Transgenic approaches for biotic stress tolerance in plants
? Advances in biotechnology for development of submergence tolerance in crops
? Proteomic perspectives on understanding plant stress response
? Role of molecular markers for improvement of stress tolerance in crops

Dr. Praduman Yadav is working as Scientist (Biochemistry), at Indian Institute of Oilseeds Research, Hyderabad, India since five years. He did his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. He has vast experience in the area of purification and characterization of enzymes and plant secondary metabolites. His research areas include oxidative stress and antioxidative defense system during fruit ripening and high temperature stress. Now a days he is working on isolation and characterization of antioxidants and phytochemicals in oilseeds. He has published several research papers in national and international peer- reviewed journals.

Dr. Sunil Kumar is working as Assistant Professor and Head (Botany), at Chhaju Ram Memorial Jat PG College, Hisar - affliated to Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, India. He did his M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. from Kurukshetra University. He has more than eight years of teaching and research experience in field of Plant Biotechnology and Molecular Biology. He has been engaged in the micropropagation of several important crops like Stevia, Jojoba, Bamboo, Sugarcane, Malkangni etc. He has conferred Young Researcher Award by Society for Plant Research. He has published several national and international research and review articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is also life member of several national societies.

Dr. Veena Jain, have contributed to the fast growing area of biochemical and molecular mechanism(s) of abiotic stress tolerance in crop plants. She did her M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar and PDF from the University of Nottingham, Nottingham (UK) 1996-97. Her research interest includes biochemical studies in relation to improvement of field, vegetable and fruit crops and microbial biocatalysts for food processing industry. A Rafi Ahmed Kidwai Awardee, she is working in CCS HAU, Hisar as Principal Scientist/ Professor for the last fourteen years. She teaches a number of courses viz. plant biochemistry, metabolism, enzymology, biochemical techniques, molecular biology and current advances in biochemistry.
