This volume reflects current interest in the plant canopy as something more than the addition of its constituent parts. It focuses on the light-intercepting surfaces of the plant - in particular, the leaf laminae and utilisation of the absorbed energy to fix carbon from the atmosphere. However, as the leaf laminae form an integral component of the whole plant, they are considered in the context of the whole plant, the couplings with other plant tissues and the constraints that this imposes. Authors cover a diverse range of species, both as monocultures and as mixed-plant communities.
