About this book

Addressing issues of global change from an evolutionary perspective, Plant Ecology in a Changing World is divided into four parts. It discusses the impact of climate change on the spatial distribution of plants; the means by which plants acquire resources in a changing environment; plant responses to predictable and unpredictable environmental conditions affecting resource availability; and the integration of currently disparate fields to provide the foundation for a new literature on how plants respond to a world changing faster than ever before.


Contents

- Plant Distributions are Related to Climate
- Plants Capture Resources in a Dynamic Environment
- Plant Behavior When Life is Predictable and When it is Not
- Plant Responses to a Changing World
- References and Appendices
