How Woody Plants Grow. Physiological and Environmental Requirements for Tree Growth. Establishment and Growth of Tree Stands. Radiation. Temperature. Soil Properties and Mineral Nutrition. Water Stress. Soil Aeration, Compaction, and Flooding. Air Pollution. Carbon Dioxide. Fire. Wind. Cultural Practices. Each chapter includes references. Index.
The efficient management of trees and other woody plants can be improved given an understanding of the physiological processes that control growth, the complex environmental factors that influence those processes, and our ability to regulate and maintain environmental conditions that facilitate growth.
- Emphasizes genetic and environmental interactions that influence woody plant growth
- Outlines responses of individual trees and tree communities to environmental stress
- Explores cultural practices useful for efficient management of shade, forest, and fruit trees, woody vines, and shrubs
Upper-level undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers in agronomy, arboriculture, ecology, forestry, horticulture, genetics, and soil science. It will also be of interest to landscape architects

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.
