About this book

Following in the footsteps of the successful first edition, "Functional Plant Ecology, Second Edition" continues to offer the latest findings and research breakthroughs in plant ecology.

Extensively revised and updated, this book investigates plant structure and behavior across the ecological spectrum. It features new chapters on molecular ecology as well as the ecology and evolution of plant crowns. A concluding chapter addresses new approaches to generalization in functional plant ecology, including the species-sampling problem, plant ecology strategy schemes, and phylogeny. With approximately 3000 literature citations, this text serves as an entry point for further research studies.
