Plants face a wide range of environmental challenges, which are expected to become more intense as a result of global climate change. Extensive research on ecological and environmental plant physiology has provided mechanistic understanding of the survival, distribution, productivity, and abundance of plant species across the diverse climates of our planet. Advancing ecophysiological understanding and approaches to enhance plant responses to new environmental conditions is critical to developing meaningful high-throughput phenotyping tools and maintaining humankind’s supply of goods and services as global climate change intensifies. Plant Perspectives to Global Climate Changes: Developing Climate-Resilient Plants reviews and integrates currently available information on the impact of the environment on functional and adaptive features of plants from molecular, biochemical, physiological to the whole plant level. The book also provides a direction towards implementation of programs and practices that will enable sustainable production of crops, resilient to climatic alterations. This book will be beneficial to academics and researchers working on stress physiology, stress proteins, genomics, proteomics, genetic engineering, and other fields of plant physiology.
