Brassinosteroids in Plant Developmental Biology and Stress Tolerance presents the mechanisms of Brassinosteroid-regulated plant developmental biology and stress tolerance that cover various biochemical, physiological, genetic and molecular studies. As unprecedented climate change threatens global food security, studies reveal that BRs could not only protect plants from stresses to ensure food security, but also reduce toxic compounds in edible plant parts. As the utilization of BRs in modern agriculture is of great significance in the context of global climate change, this book presents key information on how to develop eco-friendly growth regulators and understand the importance of brassinosteroids in safe food production.

  • Presents the multifaceted roles of brassinosteroids as phytohormones in plant growth, development and response to biotic and/or abiotic stresses
  • Unveils the physiological and molecular mechanisms controlling plant stress response to biotic and abiotic stress
  • Discusses developmental processes relating to environmental adaptations that are mediated by brassinosteroids
  • Brings together recent works of experts studying brassinosteroid crosstalk with other signals, including hormones, sugars, redox and light signals
