About this book

This thoroughly revised and updated book is now in full colour and augmented by many new illustrations and references. Brighter than ever, "The Ecology of Plants" covers a range of topics that you might find in a general ecology textbook, but with the focus on the interactions between plants and their environment over a range of scales. Throughout the text, human environmental influences are discussed, as well as the importance of evolutionary and other historical processes for current ecology.
