This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Climate Change and Crop Stress: Molecules to Ecosystems is the first book to expound the transitional period now underway, where science has progressed to a 'post-genomics' and the gene editing era, putting field performance of crops to the forefront and challenging production of practical applicability versus theoretical possibility. Environmental stresses change the conditions for crop and plant growth and in turn food supply, increasing the pressure on soil and water availability. Farming methods with a reliance on fertilizers or other chemical products are particularly affected. Researchers have concentrated efforts on the effects of these environmental stress conditions such as drought, heat, salinity, cold, or pathogen infection which can have a devastating impact on plant growth and yield under field conditions. However, these stresses seldom happen in isolation. Designed to deliver information for developing strategies to combat stress both in isolation and through simultaneous crop stresses, this edited compilation provides a comprehensive view, using a systems approach, to detail the challenges and impacts of simultaneous stresses.
