About this book

This book is an updated version of a previously published title Techniques in Bioproductivity and Photosynthesis, 2nd Edition (Coombs et al ) and, like its predecessor, has derived from UNEP-sponsored training courses which are internationally known and respected. The book provides unique coverage of all the major parameters of plant growth and relates them to the subject of global climate change.
