Description

Traditional plant physiological ecology is organism centered and provides a useful framework for understanding the interactions between plants and their environment and for identifying characteristics likely to result in plant success in a particular habitat. This book focuses on extending concepts from plant physiological ecology as a basis for understanding carbon, energy, and biogeochemical cycles at ecosystem, regional, and global levels.

This will be a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students in ecology, plant ecophysiology, ecosystem research, biometerology, earth system science, and remote sensing.

Key Features

  • The integration of metabolic activities across spatial scales, from leaf to ecosystem
  • Global constraints and regional processes
  • Functional units in ecological scaling
  • Models and technologies for scaling

Readership

Researchers and graduate students in ecology, plant ecophysiology, ecosystems research, biometerology and remote sensing
