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. The text covers in detail areas such as drought, salinity, waterlogging, oxidative stress, pathogens, and extremes of temperature and pH.

This second edition of Plant Stress Physiology:
- Presents detailed, up-to-date research on plant responses to a wide range of stresses
- Includes new, full-colour figures to 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. It is an essential resource for researchers and students of ecology, plant biology, agriculture, agronomy, and plant breeding.
