Understanding stress tolerance in plants plays a pivotal role in apprehending the metabolism (both primary and secondary), one of the prerequisites for improving plant quality and productivity. On one hand, a deficient supply of any nutrient limits the plant growth and development while on the other various biotic as well as abiotic stress factors impose a negative impact on the productivity of the plant yield. To deal with these stresses, plants have developed different strategies determining the massive flexibility of plant metabolism, encompassing morphological, anatomical, biochemical, and physiological processes. With the advent of modern omics tools, the deeper molecular networks and regulatory mechanisms involving a myriad of transcripts, proteins, and metabolites have been unravelled in plants under various stresses. This special issue intends to integrate recent omics approaches such as phenomics, genomics, epigenomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, hormonomics, metabolomics, Ionomics, fluxomics, physiomics, lipidomics, glycomics, cytomics, volatilomics, and interactomics, to allow for a detailed picture of how different plants react to the stresses and develops tolerance. These gain novel molecular insights as an integrated system entailed for devising future strategies to improve crop yield.
