This book emphasises the physical and technological aspects of plant
energetics, covering a significant interdisciplinary research area for a broad range
of investigators. It presents the thermodynamics of energy processes in plants,
their interconnection and arrangement as well as estimating intrinsic energy
needs of the plant connected with performing various physiological functions.
The book also demonstrates the role of electrical and electrochemical processes
in the life cycle of plants. It presents contemporary material, both as current
reviews of specific areas and in the form of recent research results, that will
be of value to basic research scientists and industrial researchers dealing
with photosynthesis, bioenergetics, biophysics, photobiology and plant
physiology in relation to agriculture and horticulture.
