This book addresses the importance woody plants have in agriculture, forestry, and the environment and how various stresses affect their performance. It reviews physiological and molecular responses of woody plants to major environmental stresses and focuses on the mechanisms involved in imparting resistance to stress. Chapters cover basics of plant physiology including plant structure and plant growth, photosynthesis, respiration, plant growth regulation, abiotic and biotic plant stresses including drought, water logging, nutrient deficiency, salinity, chilling, freezing, heat, oxidative stress, and heavy metal toxicity.

Dr. Wenhao Dai received his PhD in plant science, specializing in woody plant physiology and biotechnology, from North Dakota State University in 2001. He was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the AgBiotech Center at Rutgers University from 2001 – 2002. Currently, he is a Professor in the Department of Plant Sciences at North Dakota State University, leading the Woody Plant Physiology and Biotechnology program. Dr. Dai has more than 30 years of experience in woody plant research. His research areas cover woody plant physiology, biotechnology, molecular genetics, propagation, and production. Dr. Dai has taught several horticultural courses including Introductory Horticulture, Horticultural Science Laboratory, Plant Propagation, Fruit Crop Breeding, Fruit Crop Production, Nursery Production and Management, and Plant Tissue Culture and Biotechnology. Dr. Dai has published 39 research papers in peer-reviewed journals.
