Plant Life under Changing Environment: Responses and Management presents the latest insights on how to analyze and manage the changing environmental conditions of plants. This two volume set compiles current knowledge on responses, tolerance and the management of changing environmental conditions for plant productivity. Further, this is the first such resource to explore emerging strategies useful for managing plant productivity in changing environments. Volume One covers Responses and Tolerance, while Volume Two covers Management and Sustainability. Researchers and advanced students in the environmental sciences, plant ecophysiology, biochemistry and molecular biology, nano-pollution climate change and soil pollution will find this an important resource.
- Covers both responses and adaptation of plants to altered environmental states
- Illustrates the current impact of climate change on plant productivity, along with mitigation strategies
- Includes transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic and ionomic approaches
