About this book

The 3rd edition of Seeds: The Ecology of Regeneration in Plant Communities highlights the many advances in the field of seed ecology and its relationship to plant community dynamics that have taken place in recent years. The new edition also features chapters on seed development and morphology, seed chemical ecology, implications of climate change on regeneration by seed, and the functional role of seed banks in agricultural and natural ecosystems. The book is aimed at advanced level students and researchers in the fields of seed science, seed ecology and plant ecology.

Review of the 2nd edition:

"Fenner (biological sciences, U. of Southampton, UK) notes that one of the joys of seed ecology is that much research in the field can still be carried out without sophisticated technology or techniques. Four new chapters expand coverage of the 1992 text on plant reproductive ecology to include advances in understanding the evolutionary ecology of seed size, seedling establishment, and the roles of fire and gaps in regeneration. The 16 chapters by international experts also cover such topics as maternal effects on seeds during development, the role of temperature in regulation of seed dormancy and germination, and the contribution of seedling regeneration to the structure and dynamics of plant communities and ecosystems. Suitable for graduate or advanced undergraduate students."
