About this book

Including contributions from 29 leading researchers from around the world|, this important volume is split into two halves. The first deals with abiotic, natural environmental factors: light, UV radiation, chilling and freezing, high tempteratures, drought, salt, etc. The second part covers the anthrogeneric factors; that is, the environment created for plants by humans. Allelochemicals, herbicides, polyamines, air pollutants, CO2, radioisotopes, and fire are all examined.
