About this book

Introduction

Two experienced and well-known research scientists, each from a vastly different part of the world, have combined their respective expertises to provide the reader with perhaps a unique text which presents an in-depth treatment of the various stress manifestations and an overall discussion of stress in cultivated plants.
Professor Bryan McKersie of Canada, who over the years has been active in research, teaching and agricultural application of scientific techniques, has dealt with and described cold, chilling, flooding, desiccation and oxidative stress phenomena: Professor Ya'acov Leshem of Israel, whose research experience and activities have centered around different facets of plant stress, has covered heat, drought, salinity and environmental pollution. Notwithstanding their different research experiences, both authors have cooperated and together have written a well-integrated and up-to-date text describing the major stress factors and problems which are limiting factors for optimal plant growth and hence of yield.
The information assembled carefully in this book makes no claim to provide ready-made remedies to overcome the various stresses but in many cases suggests feasible and scientifically applicable approaches and partial solutions for stress coping, some of which are now in the process of being developed.
This book is intended for research workers and students of agriculture and horticulture, for plant physiologists and is of overall interest to scientists dealing with stress physiology.
