Foreword to the Publication of Materials of AllRussian Symposium “Plant and Stress” (Moscow, October 9–12, 2010) DOI: 10.1134/S1021443711060112 Plants are exposed to the complex action of damag them are devoted to the study of general mechanisms ing factors of different physical nature. The most of plant resistance to various unfavorable conditions, important are temperature and moisture availability, which include the protective antioxidant systems, since these two factors largely determine the geo compatible osmolytes manifesting multiple stress graphic range of species and yield of major agricultural protective action and properties of chemical chaper and industrial crops. Adverse changes of global climate ones, and, finally, molecular chaperones. The data on exert negative impact on plants. The consequence of plant crossadaptation to low abovezero tempera these changes is the increase of instability in the tures (or ionizing radiation) and biopathogens and regional climate and increasing aridity of the upper also the proof of the protective role of violaxanthin and rootinhabited layers of soil. In addition, industrial diadinoxanthin cycles under stress conditions are pre pollution of environment becomes every year more sented. and more threatening, which in turn leads to a Thus, it is shown that, in response to heavy metal decrease in biodiversity of wild species and to a drop in action, barley plants change transcription intensity of agrobiocenosis productivity. The development of some chloroplast genes; cadmium blocks splicing of modern biotechnologies for plant protection and the chloroplast rpl16 gene transcript.

Over nisms of plant adaptation and tolerance. In this expression of the rice Osmyb4 gene encoding MYB4 regard, plant physiologists should investigate the transfactor in rape plants was accompanied by an mechanisms of adaptation at different levels of plant increased cold tolerance due to the accumulation of defense systems, which involves understanding the compatible osmolytes and antioxidants of phenolic laws of the integrative plant responses to the deleteri nature.

To achieve this goal, it is necessary to use concentrations of heavy metal salts, and dehydration was demonstrated. A potential for the restoring the not only traditional methods of plant physiology and northern plant communities destroyed by industrial biochemistry, but also the methods of molecular biol ogy, genetic engineering, bioinformatics, genomics, pollution by means of plant seed propagation was proteomics, and metabolomics. assessed.
