Description

Physicochemical and Environmental Plant Physiology, Fourth Edition, is the updated version of an established and successful reference for plant scientists. The author has taken into consideration extensive reviews performed by colleagues and students who have touted this book as the ultimate reference for research and learning.

The original structure and philosophy of the book continue in this new edition, providing a genuine synthesis of modern physicochemical and physiological thinking, while entirely updating the detailed content. This version contains more than 40% new coverage; five brand new equations and four new tables, with updates to 24 equations and six tables; and 30 new figures have been added with more than three-quarters of figures and legends improved. Key concepts in plant physiology are developed with the use of chemistry, physics, and mathematics fundamentals.

The book is organized so that a student has easy access to locate any biophysical phenomenon in which he or she is interested.

Reviews

"... the book remains a rigorous and reliable text covering many aspects of the basic biophysics of plant physiology and of plant interactions with the environment, with its well recognized emphasis on a quantitative approach." -- Hamlyn G. Jones, The Journal of Experimental Agriculture, Cambridge University Press 2010
