Description

Environmental Plant Physiology provides a stupendous knowledge source for undergraduate and graduate students and their teachers in many inter-related disciplines, like life sciences, agricultural sciences, environmental sciences, ecology, and climatology. Further, this book can also be of vital importance for policy makers and organizations dealing with climate related issues and committed to the cause of the Earth. This book can be instrumental in formulating strategies that can lead us to a climate smart planet.

Features:

  • Ecological basis of environmental plant physiology.
  • Energy, nutrient, water, temperature, allelochemical and altitude relations of plants.
  • Stress physiology of plants.
  • Climate change effects on plant physiology.
  • Plants’ adaptations to the changing climate.
  • Evolving botanical strategies for a climate smart planet.

Table of Contents
