Synthesizes the latest developments in C4 biochemistry, physiology, systematics, and ecology, concluding with a discussion on the role of C4 plants in the future development of the biosphere, particularly their interactive effects on soil, hydrological, and atmospheric processes.
The 16 chapters are well written and thoroughly documented reviews with more than 100 references in many and a few carefully chosen tables or figures in each. A well-produced work in a series on physiological ecology, this volume should serve for years as a resource to specialists in a wide range of areas, as well as a resource for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students, their faculty, and professionals. --L.C. Davis in CHOICE (July 1999)
