Özet

Drought stress, one of the most common environmental limitations affecting growth and productivity of plants, causes many metabolic, mechanic and oxidative changes in plants. Drought induces a diverse set of physiological, biochemical and molecular responses in plants, which provide the ability of adaptation to limited environmental conditions, depending on intensity and periods of stress, interactive effects of the other stress types, development stage and genotype of plants.
