In this book,  the editors compiled nine chapters written by subject experts in the field of abiotic stress and plant resistance. This book provides an up-to-date summary of current research on plant abiotic stress signaling. The various chapters in the book provide a state-of-the-art account of the information available. This book also explores how the resulting increase in abiotic stress factors can be dealt with. The result is a must-have hands-on handbook for agricultural biotechnology, abiotic stress tolerance/resistance, academia, and researchers.

For the convenience of readers, the whole book is divided into ten chapters. Chapter 1 deals with an overview of the understanding of abiotic stresses responses in plants. Chapter 2 focuses on the new insights on plants against salt resistance strategies. Chapter 3 covers physiological and molecular adaptation strategies on plants during salinity stress. Chapter 4 discusses the role of temperature on physiological responses and adaptation mechanisms in plants. Chapter 5 summarizes the impact of abiotic stress on the nutritional quality of germinated cereal grains. Chapter 6 covers the function of agronomic interventions to combat abiotic stresses in field crops. Chapter 7 mainly covers the role of hydrophilins (boiling-soluble proteins) in abiotic stress resistance capacity in plants. Chapter 8 deals with the influence of waterlogging on the physiology and molecular biology of plants. Chapter 9 discusses the adaptive mechanisms of plants during water-deficit conditions, and Chapter 10 summarizes the impact of plant growth hormones on plants during environmental stresses.
