Cultivation for Climate Change Resilience, Volume 1: Tropical Fruit Trees (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Awareness of the adverse impact associated with the global climate change on the future of agriculture, researchers are devoting efforts for finding solutions to mitigate undesired effects based on intelligent predictions and improved utilization of available genetic resources. This book highlights the contemporary knowledge of the impacts of abiotic and biotic stresses inflected by climate changes on the production, horticultural practices and physiological processes of various fruit tree species. Moreover, it describes the adaptation of innovative approaches to mitigate the climatic adverse effects and enhance resilience characteristics of fruit crops.

Each chapter addresses one fruit crop and covers available information in relation to the various concepts. General introduction on climatic requirements of a fruit crop. Significant symptoms of climate change impacts on trees and fruit. Crop management under changed climate conditions. Natural adaptation of genetic resources. Mitigation strategies against biotic and abiotic stresses. Remote sensing and environmental certification. Future prospects and literature cited. This book is essential for researchers and students concerned with improving the productivity and quality of fruit crops to achieve sustainable fruit cultivation and conservation of this important nutritional food source for future generations.
