This latest edition of The Physiology of Flowering Plants has been completely updated to cover the explosion of interest in plant biology. A whole-plant approach has been used to produce an integrated view of plant function, covering both the fundamentals of whole plant physiology and the latest developments in molecular biology. New developments in molecular techniques are explained within practical applications such as genetically modified plants. The book further examines: Z photosynthesis, respiration, plant growth and development Z nutrition, water relations, photomorphogenesis and stress physiology Z function, with particular attention to adaptations to different habitats. Each chapter is fully referenced with suggestions for complementary reading including references to original research papers.
'The intention was to provide an up-to-date text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of plant physiology, and that is exactly how it reads.' Journal of Biological Education
