About this book

This book is a synthesis of studies of different kinds of forests (e.g. broadleaf deciduous, evergreen, coniferous) and studies of different aspects of ecosystem physiology (e.g. microclimatology, carbon balance, nutrient cycling, hydrology).

Likely to appeal to all those who wish to have some insight into the true place of trees within a more global context. Deserves a place on the shelves of all biological departments' libraries (and then on the desks of undergraduates writing almost any essay on trees, forestry, ecophysiology...). --PLANT GROWTH REGULATION "The authors provide a wide range of topics describing the basic physiological status of the trees which has an impact not only on any proficient forest management but also on forests as areas of recreation, preservation of biodiversity or water production. The book represents an excellent source of information for the rising number of scientists who want to start basic physiological studies in forests." --JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
