Abstract

Lack of water is the single most important environmental factor affecting the productivity of agricultural and natural ecosystems. Moreover, almost all other environmental stresses interact with, or exert their effects through plant water relations. This is true of thermal stresses, salinity, gaseous pollutants and the rising level of atmospheric CO2. It is therefore particularly important to have a sound understanding of water stress injury and resistance.
