About this book

Clusia is the only dicotyledonous tree genus with crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), and in some cases all variants of CAM can even be expressed in one given species. These unique features as well as its extreme flexibility have put Clusia in the limelight of international research. The scope of studies presented in Clusia: A Woody Neotropical Genus of Remarkable Plasticity and Diversity embrace morphology, anatomy and plant architecture, phytogeographical distribution and community ecology, phylogeny and genetic diversity, physiology and metabolism, physiological ecology and functional diversity, circadian rhythmicity and biological timing. Covering all aspects of tree biology this richly illustrated volume is an invaluable source of information for any plant scientist.
