Media reviews
Discussion of the meaning of canopy structure, interception of solar radiation, exchange processes, nitrogen nutrition, leaf demography, heliotropism, canopy architecture and modelling processes. Covers a wide range of plant community types and geographical locations. SciTech Book Newsu "...useful to agronomists and others interested in agricultural applications of 'canopy' growth and form." Biochemical Systematics and Ecology "...one of a small number of works that define the starting point for the plant biology of the next decade...To the extent that the book's purpose is to identify the range and introduce some of the research activities at the canopy level, it is very successful. The book is interesting, accessible and timely." American Scientist
