Demystifies the genetic, biochemical, physiological, and molecular mechanisms underlying heat stress tolerance in plants

Heat stress--when high temperatures cause irreversible damage to plant function or development--severely impairs the growth and yield of agriculturally important crops. As the global population mounts and temperatures continue to rise, it is crucial to understand the biochemical, physiological, and molecular mechanisms of thermotolerance to develop 'climate-smart' crops. Heat Stress Tolerance in Plants provides a holistic, cross-disciplinary survey of the latest science in this important field.

Presenting contributions from an international team of plant scientists and researchers, this text examines heat stress, its impact on crop plants, and various mechanisms to modulate tolerance levels. Topics include recent advances in molecular genetic approaches to increasing heat tolerance, the potential role of biochemical and molecular markers in screening germplasm for thermotolerance, and the use of next-generation sequencing to unravel the novel genes associated with defense and metabolite pathways. This insightful book:
* Places contemporary research on heat stress in plants within the context of global climate change and population growth
* Includes diverse analyses from physiological, biochemical, molecular, and genetic perspectives
* Explores various approaches to increasing heat tolerance in crops of high commercial value, such as cotton
* Discusses the applications of plant genomics in the development of thermotolerant 'designer crops'

An important contribution to the field, Heat Stress Tolerance in Plants is an invaluable resource for scientists, academics, students, and researchers working in fields of pulse crop biochemistry, physiology, genetics, breeding, and biotechnology.
