    ABA has a wide range of functions from plant development to biotic and abiotic stress signaling and tolerance. The primary functions of ABA in salt, drought, and desiccation tolerance act via inhibiting seed germination, altering root architecture, and inducing stress-responsive genes as well as gene products that act as by:   Desiccation tolerance is prominent in Linderniaceae (order Lamiales) within the clade spanning Craterostigma and Lindernia (Rahmanzadeh et al., ). Craterostigma plantagineum is a model resurrection plant (Bartels and Salamini, ) native to rocky outcrops of sub-Saharan Craterostigma and some desert-adapted Lindernia species are desiccation tolerant, but most Cited by:

    Whether that substance is a gas or a solid, it’s the same process. When we talk about desiccation in plants, we’re specifically referring to the transfer of excessive amounts of water from leaves and into the atmosphere. As a part of their normal respiratory functions, plants tend to release some moisture. Desiccation tolerance refers to the ability of an organism to withstand or endure extreme dryness, or drought -like conditions. Plants and animals living in arid or periodically arid environments such as temporary streams or ponds may face the challenge of desiccation, therefore physiological or .

      "This book provides a timely update on the recent progress in our knowledge of all aspects of plant's perception, signalling and adaptation to a variety of environmental stresses such as drought, salinity, heat, cold, frost and soil pH extremes, Al and heavy metal toxicities, desiccation, waterlogging, UV, oxidative stress and pathogens. It provides a comprehensive reference test for a .   Desiccation tolerance was a critical adaptation for the colonization of land by early nonvascular plants. Resurrection plants have maintained or rewired these ancestral protective mechanisms, and desiccation-tolerant species are dispersed across the land plant phylogeny. Although common physiological, biochemical, and molecular signatures are observed across resurrection plant Cited by: 6.

Jenks, Andrew J. Wood: Books. Plant Desiccation Tolerance brings together a field of international researchers to provide a current review of the advances in plant desiccation tolerance research.

The book is broken up into three sections: Vegetative Desiccation Tolerance; Desiccation Tolerance of Pollen, Spores, and Seeds; and Applications of Desiccation Tolerance Research. This book provides an invaluable compilation of current knowledge, which is a prerequisite for a better understanding of plant desiccation tolerance in natural as well as agro- and forest ecosystems where water is one of the most essential resources.

About this book. Desiccation tolerance was essential when plants first began to conquer land, roughly million years ago. While most desiccation-tolerant plants belong to basal phylogenetic taxa, this capacity has also evolved among some vascular plant Range: £ - £ While most desiccation-tolerant plants belong to basal phylogenetic taxa, this capacity has also evolved among some vascular plant species.

Angiosperm Plant Desiccation Tolerance: Hints from Transcriptomics and Genome Sequencing Valentino Giarola,1 Quancan Hou,1,2 and Dorothea Bartels1,* Desiccation tolerance (DT) in angiosperms is present in the small group of resurrection plants and in seeds.

DT requires the presence of protective pro-teins. basis of desiccation tolerance. Poikilohydrous plants have proven to be very suitable for exploring the basis of this tolerance with the target of genetic engineering (StewartOliver and BewleyYang et al. Bernacchia and FuriniAlpert ). Consequently, much of the current literature discusses poikilohydrous plants.

Summary: Plant desiccation tolerance is found in all phyla of chlorophyll-containing species, from prokaryotes and cryptogams to angiosperms. This volume covers the organismic as well as the cell biological and molecular levels of this phenomenon.

Summary: Plant desiccation tolerance is of great basic and applied scientific interest. Understanding plant responses and adaptations to severe desiccation is key to applying desiccation tolerance research to the improvement of economically important crops.

‘Desiccation tolerance’ generally refers to the tolerance of further dehydration, when the hydration shell of molecules is gradually lost. Desiccation tolerance includes also the ability of cells to rehydrate successfully.
