About this Book

Plant desiccation tolerance is of great basic and applied scientific interest. Understanding plant responses and adaptations to severe desiccation is key to applying desiccation tolerance research to the improvement of economically important crops. Plant Desiccation Tolerance brings together a field of international researchers to provide a current review of the advances in plant desiccation tolerance research. The book is broken up into three sections: Vegetative Desiccation Tolerance; Desiccation Tolerance of Pollen, Spores, and Seeds; and Applications of Desiccation Tolerance Research. Completely up-to-date and written by leading desiccation experts, Plant Desiccation Tolerance will be of great interest to plant researchers and plant and crop science professionals.
