Water Deficits and Plant Growth, Volume VII: Additional Woody Crop Plants is an extension of Volume VI of this treatise and deals primarily with water relations of woody crop plants in a community context. Organized into five chapters, this book begins with the important problem of predicting effects of vegetation changes on transpiration and evaporation. Separate chapters follow that discuss water relations of cotton, small fruits, grapevines, and peach trees and orchards. For each of these plant communities, emphasis is placed on hydrological cycles; water use and transpiration; absorption of water; and effects of environmental factors on soil and plant water balance. The effects of water deficits on physiological processes; vegetative and reproductive growth; yield of harvested products; drought resistance; and cultural practices affecting plant water balance and yield are also emphasized in this book. This volume will be useful to both researchers and those involved in the practice of growing woody plants for crops or for esthetic values.
