Medicinal Plant Responses to Stressful Conditions
Medicinal Plant Responses to Stressful Conditions discusses the effects of multiple biotic and abiotic stressors on medicinal plants. It features information on biochemical, molecular and physiological strategies used to mitigate or alleviate detrimental effects of biotic and abiotic stressors. The book contains chapters featuring medicinal plants of importance covering subjects including genomics, functional genomics, metabolomics, phenomics, proteomics and transcriptomics under biotic and abiotic stress of medicinal plants and their molecular responses. It suggests exogenous application of different types of stimulants to enhance medicinal plant production in such conditions.
- Details all aspects of biotic and abiotic stressors in various important medicinal plant species.
- Chapters cover evidence-based approaches in the diagnosis and management of medicinal plants under stressful conditions.
- Includes information on ways to mitigate effects from biotic stress (diseases and pests) or abiotic stress (high salinity, drought, temperature extremes, waterlogging, wind, high light intensity, UV radiation, heavy metals and mineral deficiencies).
A volume in the Exploring Medicinal Plants series, this book is an essential resource for plant scientists, botanists, environmental scientists and anyone with an interest in herbal medicine.
