This book sheds new light on ways to alleviate biotic and abiotic stress in plants, using signaling molecules of plant growth promotory rhizobacteria. Further, it elaborates on the different types of stress and strategies used by plants under various stress conditions. The respective sections describe the importance of the microbiome for the overall health of plants and how exploring plant-microbe communication and signaling pathways could offer a promising avenue for future research. The book also discusses how rhizobacteria could be exploited in stress alleviation and sustainable agriculture, and addresses omics strategies for stress response and mitigation. Thanks to clearly annotated references, the book also supports and encourages readers to further explore the topics discussed.

She has been a recipient of merit scholarships throughout her academic career. She obtained her PhD from BHU in 1990. She was awarded a two-year CSIR Fellowship for her project on Nitrogen Fixation by Cyanobacteria, after which she explored plant growth promotory Rhizobacteria in a DBT-funded project at the Department of Microbiology, Pantnagar. She joined the Department of Microbiology, Gurukul Kangri University, in 1997, and took on her current position at the Department of Microbiology, Pantnagar, in 1999. Her main research interests are in plant-microbe interaction and biodegradation; in this regard, she has worked as PI for three projects and Co-PI in more than 10 projects including one INDO SWISS project. Her most recent focus is on soil metagenomics under the influence of nanocompounds and pesticides. She has published more than 60 papers in national and international journals, book chapters and research articles. She has also edited one book: Microbial Biotechnology for Environmental Cleanup. She has presented her work at various national and international conferences, and is a life member of the AMI (Association of Microbiologist of India) and member of several other societies. She has served as Coordinator of the Women Empowerment Cell, Faculty Secretary for the College of Basic Science and Humanities, and as a member of the University's Academic Council.
