Media reviews
Given the importance of water for the growth and function of plants the book will certainly have a wide distribution among students, teachers, and investigators in basic and applied science. The authors' long experience in research and teaching obviously helped them to describe sometimes also difficult facts in an understandable way without oversimplification. Each chapter is written as a lecture of its own and therefore it is not only informative but also a real pleasure to read this book. --JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
