About this book

Detailed treatment of the physiological ecology of tropical forest plants, focusing on their unique adaptations to their environment, which differ significantly from the same processes in temperate and boreal forests. The book is organised into four sections which cover resource acquisition, species interactions, ecophysiological patterns within and among tropical forest communities, and the ecophysiology of the forest regeneration.

Contents

I: Resource acquisition; Photosynthesis; Photosynthetic responses of tropical forest plants to contrasting light environments, R. Chazdon, R. Pearcy, D. Lee, N. Fetcher; CAM and C4 plants in the humid tropics, E. Medina; Diel patterns of CO2 exchange in rainforest canopy plants, G. Zotz, K. Winter; Scaling up from leaves to whole plants and canopies for photosynthetic gas exchange, F. Meizner, G. Goldstein; On the relationship of plant geometry and photosynthetic response, T. Herbert; Photosynthetic characteristics of tropical trees along successional gradients, S. Strauss-Debenedetti, F. Bazzaz; Water Relations: Influence of seasonal drought on the carbon balance of tropical forest plants, S.S. Mulkey, S. Wright; Hydraulic architecture of woody tropical plants, M. Tyree, F. Ewers; Evaluating aspects of water economy and photosynthetic performance with stable isotopes from water and organic matter, G. Goldstein, F. Meinzer, L. Sternberg, P. Jackson, J. Cavelier, N. Holbrook; Acquisition of soil resources; Root growth and rhizosphere interactions in tropical forests, R. Sanford Jr, E. Cuevas; II: Ecophysiological aspects of species interactions; Anti-herbivore defenses of young tropical leaves: physiological constraints and ecological trade-offs, P. Coley, T. Kursar; Causes and consequences of epiphyll colonization, P. Coley, T. Kursar; Physiology of tropical vines and hemiepiphytes: plants that climb up and plants that climb down, N. Holbrook, F. Putz; III: Ecophysiological patterns across tropical forest communities; Environmental factors and ecophysiological processes along altitudinal gradients in wet tropical mountains, J. Cavelier; Phenological responses to seasonality in tropical forest plants, S. Wright; Comparative ecophysiology of Mangrove forest and tropical lowland moist rainforest, M. Ball; Ecotypic variation in the physiology of tropical plants, K. Hogan; IV: Ecophysiology of forest regeneration and succession; Physiological ecology of seed dormancy and longevity, C. Vazquez-Yanes, A. Orozco-Segovia; Ecophysiology of tropical tree seedlings, K. Kitajima; Ecophysiological constraints on the distribution of Piper species, A. Fredeen, C.
