Salinity, waterlogging, cold, drought, and heat are significant abiotic stresses that have an impact on lentil production. It is critical to develop lentil varieties that are climate resilient. These stresses slow down plant growth by disturbing its basic physiology and morphology. The precise mechanisms influencing the origin and consequences of abiotic stresses in pulses are intricate and challenging to comprehend. The genomics of physiological traits in lentils has been an area of active research in recent years, with a focus on identifying the genetic basis of important traits related to abiotic stress tolerance and improvement of yield. This chapter examines genotypic differences for abiotic stresses, the genomics studies conducted for physiological traits under stress environments, and the use of genomics for developing abiotic stress tolerance in lentils.
