About this book

This is the only horticulture textbook offering in-depth coverage of physiological processes in relation to horticultural practices. Understanding the physiology of plants is fundamental to horticulture theory and practice. This is a major textbook for junior and senior level undergraduates of horticulture. It offers in-depth coverage of applied aspects of physiology related to horticultural crops. It is an approach unique to Principles of Horticultural Physiology. It focuses throughout on how horticultural practices influence plant productivity and quality.

Beginning with the basics of plant physiology, the text progresses via plant growth and development, and environmental factors, to practical management techniques, finishing with harvesting, packaging and transportation. It is presented in highly accessible, easy-to-follow style. It is suitable for undergraduate students of horticulture and related disciplines. It is also useful for advanced growers interested in the physiology underlying many horticultural practices.
