The fact that most of the suitable land has already been cultivated, meeting a projected target of a 50 per cent increase in the global food production by 2050 to match the projected population growth becomes a challenging task. This book will provide a timely update on the recent progress in our knowledge on all aspects of plant's perception, signalling and adaptation to variety of environmental stresses such as drought, salinity, temperature and pH extremes, waterlogging, oxidative stress, and pathogens. It is suitable for researchers of plant sciences and physiology.1.2 Global Impact of Drought on Crop Production Global climate change, in the form of increasing temperature and ... and heat waves caused a total loss of around US$1825 million (http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/img/ reports/billion/state2010 .pdf).
