Adverse environmental conditions restrict the productivity and the range of habitats available to plants. This represents a severe economic constraint on agricultural production. Plants as sessile organisms have evolved a wide spectrum of adaptations to cope with the challenges of environmental stress. Quite often, however, adaptation mechanisms themselves adversely affect yield parameters, and a compromise between biomass production and environmental fitness has to be accepted.
