This thesis explores the genetic control of osmotic stress response by utilising natural genetic and phenotypic variation that exists in naturally occurring Swedish populations of the common weed Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress). The thesis describes the range of phenotypic responses to osmotic stress during very early development thereby characterising this population in terms of osmotic stress for the first time. Subsequently, regions of the genome that could be responsible for specific phenotypes are proposed where guanosine monophosphate synthetase (GMPS) is a strong candidate for future work.
