Metal and Nutrient Transporters in Abiotic Stress focuses on the different forms of environmental stress related to heavy metal, metalloid and nutrient deficiency that have the potential to inflict major damages to crop plants, leading to a massive decrease in crop yield and productivity. The book presents the current state of knowledge of the biochemical and molecular regulation of several classes of membrane transporters related to the uptake of metals/metalloids and nutrient elements during different stresses and their probable mechanisms of operation in plant stress tolerance.

Metal and Nutrient Transporters in Abiotic Stress provides a comprehensive discussion that will help in mitigating multiple forms of stresses utilizing transporter proteins. Edited by leading experts and written by a global team of knowledgeable contributors, this book will further stimulate research in the field of transporter proteins and will foster further interests for researchers, academicians and scientists worldwide. It is complimented by its companion book titled Transporters and Plant Osmotic Stress.

Dr. Aryadeep Roychoudhury is currently working as Assistant Professor in Department of Biotechnology, St. Xavier's College (Autonomous), Kolkata, India. Dr. Roychoudhury has received his Ph.D. in Science from Jadavpur University, India. During this period, he worked in the field of plant molecular biology and biotechnology in the area of abiotic stress tolerance in rice at Bose Institute, Kolkata. Currently, he is working with the different forms of environmental stresses like salinity, drought and heavy metals in plants as well as characterization of several indigenous aromatic rice varieties. He has published several research papers in international and national journals and book chapters with reputed publishers. He is also supervising Ph.D. students at his Institute. Dr. Durgesh Kumar Tripathi is currently working as a Scientific Officer in Centre for Medical Diagnostic and Research, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, Allahabad, India. He is the recipient of 'Dr DS Kothari Post Doctoral Fellowship' of the UGC, New Delhi. Dr. Tripathi has received his D.Phil. in Science from University of Allahabad, India. During this period, Dr. Tripathi worked extensively on phytolith analysis, crop stress physiology, agro-nanotehnology and molecular biology. He has expertise on laser spectroscopy. His research interests encompass stress tolerance mechanisms in plants. Presently, he is working with nano-materials and their interactions with plants to find out their detoxification mechanisms. He has published more than 65 research papers and review articles having the world repute and several book chapters. He has also edited four books for Elsevier, Wiley, CRC-Press and NOVA.
