Overview

This book presents comprehensive coverage of differentiated plant responses to changing environments. It focuses on how multiple and combined stress factors influence plant survival. It examines the latest data on the capacity of roots to alter growth patterns due to disturbances in physical and/or chemical soil constraints, water supply, and other traumas. It contains over 85% new and updated material with more than 1500 new citations, tables, drawings, and photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Acta Physiologiae Plantarum
...the first edition of this book concentrated on plant response to different stresses individually...the second edition...deal[s] with complex responses of plants to multiple stress factors. ...this book is authentically valuable due to its comprehensive reviewing of the newest belief in the field of plant abiotic stress. The described unfavorable conditions which limit plant growth [are] broadly illustrated...recommend[ed]...for all the scientists who deal with stresses and try to understand the mechanisms responsible for plant tolerance.
Field Crops Research
...a comprehensive reference.
Journal of Plant Physiology
...recommended.
Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science
...contains valuable information...on the different stresses imposed on plants during their development...recommended to scientists in the areas of plant and crop physiology, plant biochemistry and botany.
Acta Phyiologiae Plantarum
...all the problems are discussed in a very matter-of-fact way and presented in a concise form. ...an extremely rich source of information for specialists in various fields-for biologists, plant pathologists, plant physiologists, and ecologists....very useful for farmers and foresters as well as botanists....recommended to students specializing in the above fields.
Biologia Plantarum
...well-done....the book is very important to all interested in an up-to-date overview on the complex plant-environment interactions.
Photosynthetica
...an incomparable resource of up-to-date information for all scientists and students.
Advances in Horticultural Science
...of high scientific value...to scholars and researchers in many disciplines which deal with the environment.
Booknews
American researchers from the fields of agriculture, horticulture, crop science, civil engineering, agronomy, and botany present 15 contributions addressing various aspects of interactions between plants and their environments. Topics addressed include the role of morphological and physiological characteristics in drought resistance; mineral nutrition; acidic and alkaline soil constraints on plant mineral nutrition; plant stress symptomatology; irrigation of turf with effluent water; the effects of humidity on plant growth; phytochrome in crop production; and phytoremediation. Updated to emphasize the importance of correlating and understanding plants' responses to multiple factors rather than simply to individual stresses. Of likely interest to farmers, foresters, and botanists as well as specialists in the fields of plant pathology, plant physiology, and ecology. Annotation c.
