The Physiological Ecology of Woody Plants

Portada
Academic Press, 2012 M12 2 - 657 páginas
The efficient management of trees and other woody plants can be improved given an understanding of the physiological processes that control growth, the complex environmental factors that influence those processes, and our ability to regulate and maintain environmental conditions that facilitate growth.
  • Emphasizes genetic and environmental interactions that influence woody plant growth
  • Outlines responses of individual trees and tree communities to environmental stress
  • Explores cultural practices useful for efficient management of shade, forest, and fruit trees, woody vines, and shrubs

Acerca del autor (2012)

Stephen Pallardy’s research interests include the physiological responses of plants to water stress and comparative water relations, and the mechanisms by which seedlings of selected woody species and ecotypes are able to resist drought stress more effectively than others. The underlying motivation for that research included understanding how selective pressures that are associated with xeric habitats influence the evolution of drought adaptations among and within species and potential genetic improvements as a result.
