    enhance crop tolerance to abiotic stress (SDR/iSC:IAR/02/10), elaborating on the role of molecular biology and abiotic stress genomics in genetic enhancement and crop improvement. Dr. Gale stated that rop genomics represented the statec -of-the-art in plant Size: KB. Plants are subjected to a wide range of environmental stresses which reduces and limits the productivity of agricultural crops. Two types of environmental stresses are encountered to plants which can be categorized as (1) Abiotic stress and (2) Biotic stress. The abiotic stress causes the loss of major crop plants worldwide and includes radiation, salinity, floods, Cited by: 1.

    Gain a better understanding of the genetic and physiological bases of stress response and stress tolerance as part of crop improvement programs Abiotic Stresses: Plant Resistance Through Breeding and Molecular Approaches explores innovative methods for breeding new varieties of major crops with resistance to environmental stresses that limit. The recent rapid climate changes and increasing global population have led to an increased incidence of abiotic stress and decreased crop productivity. Environmental stresses, such as temperature, drought, nutrient deficiency, salinity, and heavy metal stresses, are major challenges for agriculture, and they lead to a significant reduction in crop growth and .

    Abiotic stresses caused by drought, salinity, toxic metals, temperature extremes, and nutrient poor soils are among the major constraints to plant growth and crop production worldwide. While crop breeding strategies to improve yields have progressed, a better understanding of the genetic and biological mechanisms underpinning stress adaptation is needed. Abiotic stresses cause plant growth inhibition, damage, and in the most severe cases cell death, resulting in major crop yield losses worldwide. Many abiotic stresses can lead to oxidative stress. Recent genetic and genomics studies have revealed highly complex and integrated gene networks related to abiotic stress and reactive oxygen species.

These stresses impact not only current crop species, they are also significant barriers to the introduction of crop plants into areas that are not currently being used for agriculture.

Stresses associated with temperature, salinity and drought, singly or in combination, are likely to enhance the severity of problems to which plants will be exposed in the coming decades. Stresses associated with temperature, salinity and drought, singly or in combination, are likely to enhance the severity of problems to which plants will be exposed in the coming decades.

The present book brings together contributions from many laboratories around the world to discuss and compare our current knowledge of the role stress genes play in plant stress tolerance. Get this from a library. Plant tolerance to abiotic stresses in agriculture: role of genetic engineering.

[Joe H Cherry; Robert D Locy; Anna Rychter;]. Acquired plant stress tolerance can be enhanced by manipulating stress-associated genes and proteins and by overexpression of stress-associated metabolites.

Plant resistance to abiotic stress is a multigenic trait, depending on the combination of many genes, proteins and metabolic pathways all playing in by: Abiotic stress is defined as the negative impact of non-living factors on living organisms in a specific environment.

Abiotic stresses, such as drought, salinity, low or high temperatures and other environmental extremes are the major cause of poor plant growth and reduced crop Cited by: mutation strategy for inducing stress tolerance and improvement of the yield and quality of crop plants.

Genetic engineering is the latest technology which is used for breeding programme. The introduction of novel characteristics such as new colours, biotic and abiotic stress tolerance in ornamental crops are usually.

Crop plants are affected by a variety of abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought, extreme temperatures, and oxidative stress and cause a signifi cant yield loss (more than 50 %). In the near future, these abiotic stresses might increase because of global climate change.
