Legumes under Environmental Stress Book Review:

Leguminous crops have been found to contribute almost 27% of the world’s primary crop production. However, due to environmental fluctuations, legumes are often exposed to different environmental stresses, leading to problems with growth and development, and ultimately, decreased yield. This timely review explains the transcriptomics, proteomics, genomics, metabolomics, transgenomics, functional genomics and phenomics of a wide range of different leguminous crops under biotic and abiotic stresses, and their genetic and molecular responses. Amongst others the text describes the effect of nutrient deficiency, pesticides, salt, and temperature stress on legumes. Importantly, the book explores the physiobiochemical, molecular and omic approaches that are used to overcome biotic and abiotic constraints in legumes. It looks at the exogenous application of phytoprotectants; the role of nutrients in the alleviation of abiotic stress; and the microbial strategy for the improvement of legume production under hostile environments. Key features: demonstrates how to mitigate the negative effect of stress on leguminous crops, and how to improve the yield under stress the most up-to-date research in the field written by an international team of active researchers and practitioners across academia, industry and non-profit organisations. This volume is a valuable and much-needed resource for scientists, professionals and researchers working in plant science, breeding, food security, crop improvement and agriculture worldwide.

Plant Tolerance to Environmental Stress Book Review:

Global climate change affects crop production through altered weather patterns and increased environmental stresses. Such stresses include soil salinity, drought, flooding, metal/metalloid toxicity, pollution, and extreme temperatures. The variability of these environmental conditions pared with the sessile lifestyle of plants contribute to high exposure to these stress factors. Increasing tolerance of crop plants to abiotic stresses is needed to fulfill increased food needs of the population. This book focuses on methods of improving plants tolerance to abiotic stresses. It provides information on how protective agents, including exogenous phytoprotectants, can mitigate abiotic stressors affecting plants. The application of various phytoprotectants has become one of the most effective approaches in enhancing the tolerance of plants to these stresses. Phytoprotectants are discussed in detail including information on osmoprotectants, antioxidants, phytohormones, nitric oxide, polyamines, amino acids, and nutrient elements of plants. Providing a valuable resource of information on phytoprotectants, this book is useful in diverse areas of life sciences including agronomy, plant physiology, cell biology, environmental sciences, and biotechnology.

Technologies for Livelihood Enhancement Book Review:

Twenty five s in this book are grouped into six sections: o setting the stage: topics relevant to livelihoods context, o crop agriculture, o vegetables and fruits, o animal sciences and fisheries, o agroforestry, o other livelihood options. Section on "setting the stage topics relevant to livelihoods context" (s 1-4) deals with a range of livelihood options, and addresses the issue of livelihood promotion, protection, and sustenance including under the emerging scenario of climate change. This section also deals with corporate social responsibility and the criticality of water as fundamental to livelihood The second section on "crop agriculture" (s 5-9) highlights the relevance and importance of technologies that have the potential of boosting productivity of food, feed and horticultural crops for enhancing livelihood security and quality of life of farmers. Discussion here deals with approaches for combating abiotic and biotic stresses for improving production stability and efficiency with focus on combining productivity with stress tolerance. Importance of weed management and early warning systems for disaster management is also highlighted for safeguarding livelihoods. The vegetables and fruits section (s 10-14) discusses use of traditional and emerging technologies, hybrid technology, green-house and related protected cultivation technologies, and appropriate policies to empower farmers to boost their income. Protection against insect-pest and deployment of disease tolerant crops not only improves socio-economic status of farmers but also ensures cleaner environment. Realizing the vast potential of animals and fisheries for reducing poverty and enhancing livelihood, the next section has five presentations (s 15-19) covering issues ranging from cold water fishes to highlander yak. The importance of cattle, the relevance of veterinarians and the criticality of currently available and futuristic technologies is also underlined. Where relevant, the section undertakes SWOT analysis and discusses issues emerging from climate change. The agroforestry section (s 20-22) propagates the value of synergy of agriculture with appropriate forestry technologies to evolve a profitable and sustainable land-use system. The section details with many potentially powerful agroforestry technologies, the range of available tradable bioresources and important pursuable options pertaining to medicinal and aromatic plants. Indigenous food products, bee keeping and silk productions are three important issues grouped under "other livelihood options" (s 23-25). This section discusses the importance, need of introducing scientific and technological interventions, and improving policy decision making for improving livelihood via agro-industrial development.
