Allelopathy - A Physiological Process with Ecological Implications

Edited by Reigosa, Manuel J.; Pedrol, Nuria; González, Luís 
Springer  2006  

Hardcover  637 pp  ISBN 9781402042799      £233.00
This book provides the reader with relevant information about actual knowledge of the process of allelopathy, covering all aspects from the molecular to the ecological level. Special emphasis is given to the physiological and ecophysiological aspects of allelopathy. Several ecosystems are studied and methodological considerations are taken into account in several chapters. The book has been written to be useful both for Ph.D. students and for senior researchers, so the chapters include all necessary information to be read by beginners, but also include a lot of useful information and discussion for the initiated.

Written for active researchers in allelopathy, organic farming, agriculture and forestry, beginning plant ecologists, senior researchers
