About this book

In these proceedings, particular attention was given to elucidating the mode of action by which individual stress elements reduce productivity. Environmental factors and the levels that constitute stressed (suboptimal) conditions in forest stands were identified, and the effects of stress intensity and duration on key stand parameters, including photosynthesis, respiration, assimilate partitioning, senescence and mortality, were emphasized.

... the book must be recommended to forestry libraries and individual scientists with an interest in the functioning of individual trees of forests as complex ecosystems.' IAWA Bulletin, 7: 3 (1986)
