This textbook covers Plant Ecology from the molecular to the global level.
It covers the following areas in unprecedented breadth and depth:
Hardback 702 p. 506 illus., 450 in colour., ISBN 9783540208334
The book is carefully structured and well written: complex issues are elegantly presented and easily understandable.
It contains more than 500 photographs and drawings, mostly in colour, illustrating the fascinating subject.
- Molecular ecophysiology (stress physiology: light, temperature, oxygen deficiency, drought, salt, heavy
metals, xenobiotica and biotic stress factors)
- Autecology (whole plant ecology: thermal balance, water, nutrient, carbon relations)
- Ecosystem ecology (plants as part of ecosystems, element cycles, biodiversity)
- Synecology (development of vegetation in time and space, interactions between vegetation and the abiotic
and biotic environment)
- Global aspects of plant ecology (global change, global biogeochemical cycles, land use, international
conventions, socio-economic interactions)
The book is primarily aimed at graduate students of biology but will also be of interest to post-graduate
students and researchers in botany, geosciences and landscape ecology. Further, it provides a sound basis for those
dealing with agriculture, forestry, land use, and landscape management.
Advanced students, researchers, university teachers, and practitioners
