Cover for Interactive role of polyamines and reactive oxygen species in stress tolerance of plants.

Plants encounter abiotic stresses regularly under natural conditions apart from abrupt natural calamities for which the plant may not be prepared. Accordingly, plants are also armoured with protective or adaptive mechanisms that combat the potential stress-induced injuries. Some small molecules...
