About this book

A comprehensive summary of strategies (with several case studies) for applying molecular plant genomics in the fields of plant ecotoxicology and plant ecology. The book focuses on ecological funtions and relates molecular stress responses and signalling pathways to environmental interactions.

From the reviews: "... a concise collection of articles that gives up-to-date insight into selected mechanisms of how plants perceive and react to environmental factors and how this knowledge may be used to interpret outcomes on larger scales ... a valuable read for both advanced students and researchers working in the field." (Annals in Botany) "Springer's book Molecular ecotoxicology of plants edited by H.Sandermannn ! is unique in focusing on plants. ! the book is a concise collection of articles that gives up-to-date insight into selected mechanisms of how plants perceive and react to environmental factors and how this knowledge may be used to interpret outcomes on larger scales. As such, it is a valuable read for both advanced students and researchers working in the field." (Anton R. Schnaffner, Annals of Botany, Vol. 97 (3), 2006)
