This textbook covers Plant Ecology from the molecular to the worldwide point. It covers the next parts in remarkable breadth and depth:

- Molecular ecophysiology (stress body structure: mild, temperature, oxygen deficiency, drought, salt, heavy metals, xenobiotica and biotic rigidity factors)
- Autecology (whole plant ecology: thermal stability, water, nutrient, carbon relations)
- surroundings ecology (plants as a part of ecosystems, aspect cycles, biodiversity)
- Synecology (development of crops in time and house, interactions among plants and the abiotic and biotic environment)
- international facets of plant ecology (global swap, worldwide biogeochemical cycles, land use, overseas conventions, socio-economic interactions)

The ebook is punctiliously dependent and good written: advanced matters are elegantly awarded and simply comprehensible. It includes greater than 500 pictures and drawings, more often than not in color, illustrating the attention-grabbing subject.
The booklet is basically geared toward graduate scholars of biology yet can also be of curiosity to post-graduate scholars and researchers in botany, geosciences and panorama ecology. additional, it offers a valid foundation for these facing agriculture, forestry, land use, and panorama management.
