The predicted increase in global mean temperature and its variability is a significant challenge for sustainable crop productivity under current and future climates. Research on understanding heat stress responses, identifying physiological processes, developing phenotyping protocols and unraveling molecular pathways that can help breed heat stress resilient crops is prominent in the crop science community. Research teams and laboratories contributing to this special issue title ‘Heat Stress on Crop Growth and Development’ have consolidated information on multiple dimensions of heat stress. The collection of reviews and research papers provides an excellent platform for developing future research objectives and is a valuable reference for students and researchers working on the heat stress response in crops.
