Abiotic stress is a major limitation on agricultural productivity. Due to global climate change and rising temperatures, plants increasingly face the threat of heat stress, which has significant impacts on plant growth and crop yield.

Photosynthesis at the leaf level represents a finely balanced economic challenge to the plant: the beneficial uptake of CO2 through stomata for photosynthesis is unfortunately coupled to the unavoidable loss of typically 100-fold more water to the atmosphere.
