Oxidative Stress Response in Plants, Volume 105 covers environmental stress conditions and the accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). During many stress conditions such as salt, drought, heat, and pathogen infection, changes in metabolic fluxes and alterations in enzymatic activities result in the accumulation of ROS, a major contributor to loss of growth and productivity. High levels of ROS can lead to oxidative stress which damages proteins and DNA, ultimately resulting in plant cell death. This volume provides comprehensive insights into ROS biology in plants, with a focus on plant growth and development, plant defense responses, and plant acclimation to challenging environments.

On the other hand, ROS evolves into potent signaling molecules that play crucial roles in abiotic and biotic stress sensing, integration of different environmental signals, and activation of stress-response networks, thereby contributing to the establishment of improved stress resilience.
