The processes and mechanisms that control the growth of woody plants are of crucial importance for both economic and biological reasons. The comprehensive coverage of Growth Control in Woody Plants includes discussion of the growth controlling factors in both reproductive structures (flowers, fruit, seeds, pollen, etc.) and vegetative organs (stems, branches, leaves, and roots). Other major topics covered include seed germination, seedling growth, physiological and environmental regulation of growth, cultural practices, and biotechnology.This comprehensive treatment of the many factors that control the growth of woody plants can serve both as a valuable text and as a frequently used reference.

Stephen Pallardy

Stephen Pallardy’s research interests include the physiological responses of plants to water stress and comparative water relations, and the mechanisms by which seedlings of selected woody species and ecotypes are able to resist drought stress more effectively than others. The underlying motivation for that research included understanding how selective pressures that are associated with xeric habitats influence the evolution of drought adaptations among and within species and potential genetic improvements as a result.
