Beneficial Microbes for Sustainable Agriculture under Abiotic Stress: Functional Traits and Regulation highlights the potential for microbe-mediated stress phytotolerance to be improved by presenting multiple scenarios of application and results.In most research and studies, abiotic stress is applied singularly to specific plants inoculated with a bioinoculum or a microbial consortium to isolate specific plant-microbe responses. However, in reality, plants are continually exposed to a multitude of different stresses simultaneously occurring. This book presents microbial functional traits and microbe-mediated plant responses under both specific or combined stress conditions. Collectively, it provides insights into microbial functional traits and microbe-mediated plant responses in a wide range of conditions, providing foundational understanding of their potential benefits, and inspiring further research.The book also centers on specific microbial strains and groups which have been shown to effectively promote stress tolerance, and which could be utilized to boost agricultural production under stress conditions. Their potential utilization in stress affected lands not just improves crop production but could also be in line with sustainable agriculture.With the advancement of tools such as omics related technologies, emerging information on microbial functional traits and regulations on microbe-mediated phytotolerance will also allow us to develop relevant biotechnologies harnessing potentials of plant-microbe interactions under stress conditions. The information in this volume will be of interest to those working toward these next steps.

On Epigenetics and Evolution, a new volume in the Translational Epigenetics series, introduces key themes from current epigenetic evolution research, with contributions from leading scientists around the world that investigate the role of epigenetic mechanisms in evolution from a variety of different angles, with each contribution combining theory, current research overviews, and applications. This book gives researchers, students, and clinicians a better understanding of the origin of genotypic and phenotypic variability, the role of epigenetics in development and inheritance, how epigenetics may affect speciation, and the evolution of epigenetic mechanisms in different taxa, and helps them apply their learnings across new research. Other modalities and subtopics explored include epigenetics in neutral and also adaptive evolution; epigenetic evolution in plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates; and the role of epigenetics in human evolution and its societal impact.

The Lentil Genome: Genetics, Genomics and Breeding is a comprehensive volume on this important legume, from its economic importance to the latest in sequencing. The book includes botanical descriptions, discussion of lentil genetics, cytogenetics and breeding, molecular mapping genes and QTLs, as well as structural and functional genomics, genome sequencing, assembly, repetitive genome, gene annotation and synteny. Lentil [Lens culinaris ssp. culinaris Medikus] is among the earliest domesticates from the Near-East Fertile Crescent and plays a vital role in nutritional wellbeing and livelihood for the small-scale farmers in the dryland agricultural ecosystems of South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, West Asia, and North Africa. The classical plant breeding approach of selection-recombination-selection has been used successfully for genetic improvement in lentil. However further genetic improvement for developing the high yielding cultivars is required knowledge of gene network underlying the complex traits. Realizing the importance of genomics enabled improvement in crop plants, the scientific community has recently placed major emphasis on whole genome sequencing in many major crops including lentil. This compilation of the latest lentil genome research serves the immediate needs of students, scientists and is needed to strengthen conventional crop improvement strategies of lentil.
