About This Topic

Dear colleagues and researchers

Plants as sessile organisms are frequently challenged with various environmental stresses (biotic and abiotic). For years, scholars have tried to understand the defense mechanisms underlying the interaction between diverse stressful factors and exogenous stimulants. Among these responses, activation of the antioxidative systems (enzymatic and non-enzymatic), glyoxalase systems and; regulation of hormonal balance, osmotic potential, plant water relations, photosynthesis and leaf pigments are common and powerful concomitant techniques that can protect plants against a wide array of abiotic stressors (drought or water deficit, water logging, salinity, soil pH, high temperatures, chilling , UV and heavy metals). Despite the huge efforts of previous studies, there is a continuing need for rigorous multidisciplinary scientific research to decipher the molecular mechanisms and to have a comprehensive picture of how plants treated or non-treated by different chemicals or biomolecules cope with the surrounded challenges in their environment. In this special issue, we invite all researchers of different backgrounds (Botany, horticulture, agronomy, biochemistry, genetics … etc.) to publish their experimental results on any plant species. All basic and applied researches regarding the improvement of plant growth, development and productivity under molecular background are welcome. Furthermore, any investigations to sustain the economic importance using some molecules as exogenous applications to ameliorate the detrimental influences of different abiotic stressors are extremely encouraged.


Abiotic stress, plant growth, yield, signaling molecules, stress responsive genes, phytohormones, photosynthesis, plant nutrition and physiological mechanisms.
