Plant Metabolites under Environmental Stress: Mechanisms, Responses, and Adaptation Strategies provides a timely update on the knowledge of plant responses to various environmental stresses such as salinity, waterlogging, drought, pollution, heat, temperature, oxidative stress, and mineral deficiencies. Chapters focus on physiological and biochemical mechanisms identified in plants that are crucial for them to adapt to biotic and abiotic stress and the methods for improving plant tolerance mechanisms. The book also throws light on plant secondary metabolites such as phenolic compounds and plant growth regulators in ameliorating the stressful conditions in plants. The scientific knowledge and expertise presented in this volume will be valuable to agronomists, plant physiologists, horticulturists, research scholars of botany and agriculture science, academicians of plant sciences as well students in these areas.
