Completely updated from the successful first edition, this book provides a timely update on the recent progress in our knowledge of all aspects of plant perception, signalling and adaptation to a variety of environmental stresses. It covers in detail areas such as drought, salinity, waterlogging, oxidative stress, pathogens, and extremes of temperature and pH. This second edition: Presents detailed and up-to-date research on plant responses to a wide range of stresses Includes new full-colour figures to help illustrate the principles outlined in the text Is written in a clear and accessible format, with descriptive abstracts for each chapter Written by an international team of experts, this book provides researchers with a better understanding of the major physiological and molecular mechanisms facilitating plant tolerance to adverse environmental factors. This new edition of Plant Stress Physiology is an essential resource for researchers and students of ecology, plant biology, agriculture, agronomy and plant breeding.

About Author

S Shabala is a Professor in Plant Physiology at the University of Tasmania, Australia. His major expertise is in stress physiology and membrane transport in plant, bacteria and animal systems. His 26 years of expertise in the field has resulted in ca 120 publications in international peer reviewed journals and over 2,300 citations and h-index of 28. He is routinely reviewing papers for over 50 international journals and acts as a reviewer for major funding bodies in Australia, USA, UK, and a large number of European countries. He is also an Editor/Editorial Board member on four international plant science journals. The Stress Physiology laboratory at the University of Tasmania he currently leads includes 15 members and collaborates with over 40 laboratories in 17 countries. Over the last 10 years he has hosted over 30 international visitors using the unique facilities for non-invasive microelectrode ion flux measurements; the so called MIFE technique he had pioneered in stress physiology research.
