|Physiology Of Abiotic Stress In Plants by P Dwivedi And R S Dwivedi|
Human being is reformer and destructor of himself and the society. With the advancement in human civilization and consequent progress in industrialization and space, geological and geo-hydrological technologies, thermal/hydro power generation, water conservation/ management technologies and increasing use/demand of nuclear and fossil fuel, the environmental conditions are changing and posing new problems to all living creatures including plant kingdom. Consequently, the domains of atmospheric, edaphic, biotic and abiotic impediments are expanding. All these components determine the distribution of natural and man made vegetation, their survival and propagation. In agricultural systems, even if conditions tend to be optimized, the effect of abiotic stresses resulting from changes in the physico-chemical environment is reflected at quantitative and qualitative levels. To cope up with changing environmental conditions, there is dire need of developing and introducing new plant type ingrained with either of the character viz. xerophytes, hydrophytes, acidophobes and acidophiles; calcifuges and calcicoles; halophytes and glycophytes and metallophytes (adapted to metalliferous soils).
