Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food production is being challenged by climate change. Severe drought, extreme temperature and high salinity soils are just some of the abiotic stresses expected to face agriculture in the next years. The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) plays a key role in plant response to abiotic stress. Thus, studies on ABA perception, signaling and response in crops are needed to understand and master the plant adaptation to sub-optimal environments. This Special Issue of Life on “Abscisic Acid Perception, Signaling and Response in Crops: Fighting Climate Change” intends to group original research articles and review papers regarding the ABA machinery in crops: from synthesis to response. The final out-put aims to provide the fundamental basis for further stress-resistance breeding in crops.
