Promotional Information

An authoritative introduction to plant responses and adaptation to the aerial environment, ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

About the Author

Hamlyn G. Jones is Emeritus Professor of Plant Ecology at the University of Dundee. His research uses experimental approaches and mathematical modelling to investigate the characteristics that enable plants to be adapted to specific environments and to tolerate environmental stress.

Reviews

'For those working with plants in an environmental context, this book is a must. It became the standard reference in bioclimatology, plant ecophysiology and plant ecology. Hamlyn Jones translates complex physical principles into a language biologists greatly appreciate. It's wonderful to see a third edition, underlining the lasting impact this book has.' Christian Koerner, University of Basel
'I have strongly recommended the previous editions to all my students in plant physiology or applied crop management and will continue to do so with this excellent new edition. Hamlyn Jones provides an excellent combination of experimental experience with the mathematical and physical bases of plant physiology and environmental physics. This true systems approach to understanding plant responses to the environment is precisely what is needed as we address complex issues such as climate change. This is a book that should be read by any scientist attempting to understand and affect plant responses to the environment at the whole plant and crop level, but especially at the molecular level. The combination of clear conceptual explanations, and many well-chosen figures and tables, along with their mathematical basis is particularly helpful to those with different learning styles and goals.' Alan N. Lakso, Cornell University
'This book's continued emphasis on using primary quantitative data to illustrate plant behaviour and function maintains its authoritative position as the core text for environmental plant physiology. This third edition sees the scope of the book expanding upwards and outwards with a new section on remote sensing, and inwards to cover the emerging 'omics', whilst always retaining its focus on the whole plant. I have lost four copies of the second edition to light-fingered students over the years - convincing evidence of its irresistible value. I firmly expect this third edition to be equally desirable!'
