Extremophytes: Lessons Learnt from Plants Living on the Edge

Paperback - August 2016 - AU $75.00

This special issue of Functional Plant Biology focuses on physiological and molecular processes that enable extremophytes to naturally survive high levels of salt or desiccation.

Plants that can survive and even thrive in extreme environments—extremophytes—are likely to be a treasure trove of information for understanding the processes of plant adaptation to environmental stresses. These species represent excellent models for understanding mechanisms of stress tolerance that may not be present in stress-sensitive species, as well as for identifying genetic determinants to develop stress-tolerant crops. This special issue of Functional Plant Biology focuses on physiological and molecular processes that enable extremophytes to naturally survive high levels of salt or desiccation. + Full description
