This book presents a whole-plant perspective on plant integrated responses to multiple stresses, including an analysis of how plants have evolved growth forms and phenological responses to cope with changing stress patterns in natural environments.

Key Features

  • Explores stress responses at both the structural and process levels
  • Outlines structural, phenological, and physiological responses that optimize production under multiple stresses
  • Combines physiological and evolutionary perspectives


Researchers and graduate-level students in physiological ecology, plant physiology, agronomy, forestry, crop science, and horticulture
