Environmental Plant Physiology focuses on the physiology of plant-environment interactions, revealing plants as the key terrestrial intersection of the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and geosphere. It provides a contemporary understanding of the topic by focusing on some of humankind's fundamental biological, agricultural and environmental challenges. Its chapters identify thirteen key environmental...
A comprehensive discussion of the vegetative anatomy of orchids, describing the structure and relationships among the cells and tissues of leaves, stems, and roots.
With the writing and accessible approach that have made it the authoritative introduction to the field of molecular photosynthesis, this book offers students and researchers topical coverage of bioenergy applications and artificial photosynthesis; advances in biochemical and genetic methods; as well as analytical techniques.
Importantly, genetic engineering now enables plant biologists to manipulate the signaling pathways of plant hormones for development of crop varieties with improved yield and stress tolerance.
Featuring integrated data from discrete disciplines, this volume is the first on oxygen stress in plants and reflects the advances in our knowledge of the topic over the last decade. It is a comprehensive guide to the diversity of plant responses to hypoxia.
The Biology of Reaction Wood
This 3rd edition highlights many advances in the field of seed ecology and its relationship to plant community dynamics over recent years. It features chapters on seed development and morphology, seed chemical ecology, implications of climate change on regeneration, and the functional role of seed banks in agricultural and natural...
