About this book

Presents a whole-plant perspective on plant integrated responses to multiple stresses, including an analysis of how plants have evolved growth forms and phenological responses to cope with changing stress patterns in natural environments.

This book will be of value to those involved in plant physiology, plant ecology, and the management of plants and their habitats. --QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY "The book offers an approach to the problem of plant stress which hitherto have received relatively little attention in an integrated fashion. It should, therefore, be welcomed by ecologists, ecophysiologists, physiologists, and by those concerned with the management of plants and their environment." --BOTANICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY "The book will be of value to environmental physiologists and plant ecologists, as well as those concerned with the management of plants and their environments." --ANNALS OF BOTANY
