About this book

Plants do not grow in places at random, either globally or locally. The predictability of their physical arrangement, termed their spatial pattern, has important implications not only for the plant themselves, but also for other organisms which interact with plants. This book describes and evaluates methods for detecting and quantifying a variety of characteristics of spatial pattern.
