Common Effects of Abiotic Stress Factors on Plants

Plants are living organisms which lack ability of locomotion. Animals can move easily from one location to other. Immovable property of plants makes it difficult for them to survive under stress conditions. This means plants need more stress escaping plans to survive from it.

What are the Abiotic stress factors?

Abiotic factors mean the factors which don't include living organisms or systems.

Some examples are Water, Salt, Light, High temperature, Low temperature, Pollutant or chemicals, nutrient and heavy metals.

These factors directly or indirectly affect the intake of nutrients which means it leads to problems in metabolism or energy synthesizing processes. Compromise in nutrient means slow growth, slow developmement and reproductivity.
