About this book

Botanists who want to gain a strong foundation in fundamental concepts of plant physiology consistently rely on Hopkins. The book provides them with accurate, modern, and streamlined content.

The fourth edition has been updated to include even more modern applications and color within key images and illustrations to make the material easier to understand. A new chapter is also included that explains how to study plant physiology and a new glossary helps reinforce concepts. Botanists will discover how the concepts are supported by evidence from physiological, biochemical, biophysical, and genomic experiments.

Hopkins is concise and straightforward, emphasizing the 'big picture.' It is readable and the figures are clearly described and support the text. Students who use Hopkins come away with a strong foundation in basic principles for a range of areas.--Donald P, Briskin, University of Illinois "Writing style is a real strength of this book. The level of detail is just right and the language is easy to follow."--Clemson University
