1 Review
A richly illustrated text now in its third edition, Physiological Plant Ecology explores the vital processes of plants in interaction with the environment. Focusing on the way different plant species and functional types react in various locations and in all climatic zones, this well-known text has been widely recognised for its clarity and accurate synthesis of a vast body of research. It offers insight into the laws governing the carbon, nitrogen, mineral and water balance as well as the development, vital capacity and adaptability of plants. Entirely revised and enlarged - while keeping the superb illustrations and tables that drew praise in earlier editions - it is ideal for students in biology, ecology and geography, and in agricultural and forestry sciences.
