Description

Heat stress—when high temperatures cause irreversible damage to plant function or development—severely impairs the growth and yield of agriculturally-important crops. As the global population grows and temperatures continue to rise, it is crucial to understand the biochemical, physiological and molecular mechanisms of thermotolerance to develop ‘climate-smart’ crops. Heat Stress Tolerance in Plants provides a holistic, cross-disciplinary survey of the latest science in the field.

Presenting contributions from an international team of plant scientists and researchers, this volume examines heat stress, its impact on crop plants, and various mechanisms to modulate tolerance levels. Topics include recent advances in molecular genetic approaches for increased heat tolerance, the potential role of biochemical and molecular markers in screening germplasm for thermotolerance, and the use of next-generation sequencing (NGS) to unravel the novel genes associated with defense and metabolite pathways. Helping to clarify the mechanisms associated with thermotolerance in plants.
