Sustainable Crop Productivity and Quality under Climate Change: Responses of Crop Plants to Climate Change explores the physiological, biochemical, and molecular basis of the responses of major crop plants to a range of climate change scenarios. From the development of climate-resilient crop varieties which lead to enhanced crop productivity and quality to better utilization of natural resources to ensure food security through modern breeding techniques, it presents insights into improving yield while securing the environment.

Understanding the impact of climate on crop quality and production is a key challenge of crop science. Predicted increases in climate variability necessitate crop varieties with intrinsic resilience to cooccurring abiotic stresses such as heat, drought, and flooding in a future climate of elevated CO2. This book presents a much-needed mechanistic understanding of the interactions between multiple stress responses of plants that is required to identify and take advantage of acclimation traits in major crop species as a prerequisite for securing robust yield and good quality.

This book is an excellent reference for crop and agricultural scientists, plant scientists, and researchers working on crop plant ecophysiology/stress physiology and future crop production.

  • Includes breeding strategies for developing climate-resilient crop varieties
  • Presents a comprehensive overview of the current challenges, approaches, and best practices
  • Authored by frontline researchers and experts who work at the fields of climate change impacts on crop productivity

Dr. Fulai Liu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He received his B.Sc. in Agronomy from Beijing Agricultural University (now China Agricultural University), Beijing, China, and M.Sc. in Horticultural Science from University of Hannover, Germany. In 2004, he received his Ph.D. in Agrohydrology and Bioclimatology from The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University (now Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen). His research focuses on the physiological and biochemical regulation of growth and functioning of crop plants subjected to abiotic stresses including drought, heat, cold, salinity, and light. He has more than 140 peer-reviewed publications and has edited 1 book and contributed 6 book chapters.
Dr Xiangnan Li is a Professor and Deputy Director of CAS Key Laboratory of Mollisols Agroecology, Northeast Institute of Geography and Agroecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. He received his PhD in Crop Ecophysiology from Nanjing Agricultural University in 2014. His main research areas include the eco-physiological responses of wheat plants to abiotic stress and their interactions with nanoparticles and elevated CO2. His objectives are to explore practical approaches, such as melatonin feeding and stress priming, to improve stress tolerance and clarify their mechanisms in wheat.
Dr Petra Hogy is a Professor of Plant Ecology and Ecotoxicology at the Institute of Landscape and Plant Ecology, University of Hohenheim, Germany. She received her Habilitation in Plant Ecology and Ecotoxicology from the University of Hohenheim in 2013. Her research areas include experimental research on the effects of climate change such atmospheric CO2 enrichment and extreme events on agroecosystems; mechanistic understanding of wheat growth, yield formation and yield quality under conditions of climate change including crop physiology, ecophysiology, proteomics and metabolomics; experimental data for model improvement; innovations in resource-efficient land use.
Dr Dong Jiang is a Professor at the College of Agronomy, Nanjing Agricultural University, China. He worked previously as a crop physiologist and agronomist, and was in charge of the construction of the National Plant Phenotyping Facility of China. Current research interests include the physiological mechanism and regulatory approaches targeting simultaneous high-yield and super-quality in wheat; the physiological mechanisms on abiotic stress tolerance in wheat and the mitigation approaches; and using phenomics to screen wheat genotype in response to different types of abiotic stresses, such as drought stress, waterlogging stress, nitrogen responses, etc.
Dr Marian Brestic is a Professor at the Department of Plant Physiology, Slovak University of Agriculture, Slovakia. He received his PhD from the Slovak University of Agriculture in 1988 and teaches in the fields of plant physiology, plant stress physiology, physiology of irrigated plants, production ecology under global climate change, ecophysiology and ecology of photosynthesis.
Dr Bing Liu is an Associate Professor at the College of Agriculture, Nanjing Agricultural University, China. He received his PhD in Information Agriculture in 2016 from Nanjing Agricultural University. His research areas include extreme climate effects on crop growth, yield, and quality; agricultural systems modelling; and climate change impact assessment and adaptation.
