Water stress in plants is caused by the water deficit, as induced possibly by drought or high soil salinity. The prime consequence of water stress in plants is the disruption in the agricultural production, resulting in food shortage. The plants, however, try to adapt to the stress conditions using biochemical and physiological interventions. The edited compilation is an attempt to provide new Cited by: 2. Water Relations of Plants attempts to explain the importance of water through a description of the factors that control the plant water balance and how they affect the physiological processes that determine the quantity and quality of growth.

Lush & Efficient is a page guide to water-efficient landscaping. It includes information on several hundred water-efficient plants, trees and shrubs, as well recommended water times and instructions for installing a new irrigation system. This chapter is dedicated to the description of water transport in plant tissues. Differences and similarities between plant conductive tissue (xylem) and soils are presented, and detailed models of flow through xylem conduits are used to explain inherent trade-offs in plant water use. People save water, not plants (or irrigation timers)!
