About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic we seek to build a collection of articles addressing responses of grass species to abiotic stress with the emphasis on how turfgrass and forage has adapted to adverse environmental conditions. Studies using model grasses like Brachypodium and rice are included, where they contribute to an understanding of the adaptation of turf and forage grasses to abiotic stresses. Omics related studies to elucidate transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomics changes in grasses, and the development of genetic markers for stress tolerance traits are encouraged. The roles of phytohormones during grass stress responses will be a highlighted area. The focus is to enrich our understanding on the role of complex signaling transduction pathways in grass response and tolerance to abiotic stresses. All types of articles, including original research, review, mini review, method, perspective, and opinion are welcomed in this Research Topic.
Keywords: Turfgrass, Gene function, Hormone, Abiotic stress
