Environmental stresses represent the most limiting

factors for agricultural productivity. Apart from biotic

stress caused by plant pathogens, there are a number

of abiotic stresses such as extremes in temperature,

drought, salinity, heavy metals and radiation which

all have detrimental effects on plant growth and yield.

However, certain plant species and ecotypes have

developed various mechanisms to adapt to such

stress conditions.

Recent advances in the understanding of these abiotic

stress responses provided the impetus for compiling

up-to-date reviews discussing all relevant topics in

abiotic stress signaling of plants in a single volume.

Topical reviews were prepared by selected experts and

contain an introduction, discussion of the state of art

and important future tasks of the particular fields.
