About this book

Woody plants such as trees have a significant economic and climatic influence on global economies and ecologies. This completely revised classic book is an up-to-date synthesis of the intensive research devoted to woody plants published in the second edition, with additional important aspects from the authors' previous book, Growth Control in Woody Plants. Intended primarily as a reference for researchers, the interdisciplinary nature of the book makes it useful to a broad range of scientists and researchers from agroforesters, agronomists, and arborists to plant pathologists and soil scientists.

This third edition provides crutial updates to many chapters, including: responses of plants to elevated CO2; the process and regulation of cambial growth; photoinhibition and photoprotection of photosynthesis; nitrogen metabolism and internal recycling, and more. Revised chapters focus on emerging discoveries of the patterns and processes of woody plant physiology.

Media reviews
...the book is an excellent review on what has been done in this field and a valuable source of knowledge for researchers, agronomists and foresters. The illustration of the book is adequately done by monochrome pictures especially in the structure related chapters and by diagrams redrawn from original papers with uniform labeling. --Wolfgang Ruhle, JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
