 Open access book on abiotic stresses on crop plants published, March, 2013

Abiotic Stress - Plant Responses and Applications in Agriculture

Edited by Kourosh Vahdati and Charles Leslie, ISBN 978-953-51-1024-8, Hard cover, 410 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published March 13, 2013 under CC BY 3.0 license
DOI: 10.5772/45842

"This book is not intended to cover all known abiotic stresses or every possible technique used to understand plant tolerance but, instead, to describe some of the widely used approaches to addressing such major abiotic stresses as drought, salinity, extreme temperature, cold, light, calcareous soils, excessive irradiation, ozone, ultraviolet radiation, and flooding, and to describe major or newly emerging techniques employed in understanding and improving plant tolerance. Among the strategies for plant stress survival, examples of both avoidance and tolerance are presented in detail and comprehensive case studies of progress and directions in several agricultural crops such as apple, walnut, grape and wheat are included."

Ground-breaking development potentially provides every cell in the plant with the ability to fix atmospheric Nitrogen

World changing technology enables crops to take nitrogen from the air
Is this the first step to second green revolution.


Professor Edward Cocking, Director of The University of Nottingham's Centre for Crop Nitrogen Fixation, has developed a unique method of putting nitrogen-fixing bacteria into the cells of . His major breakthrough came when he found a specific strain of nitrogen-fixing bacteria in sugar-cane which he discovered could intracellularly colonise all major . This ground-breaking development potentially provides every cell in the plant with the ability to fix . The implications for agriculture are enormous as this new technology can provide much of the plant's nitrogen needs.

More pollution less global warming: US and China are less affected by Global Warming?

Recent study of Harvard University researchers come up with an amazing results. Their findings emphasized that the tiny particles above the US air can have a reversing effect on global warming.

According to their findings those countries who contribute more on air pollution and rich in tiny particles in their atmosphere have less impact on global warming in regional scale.
