Handbook of Plant and Crop Physiology (2nd Edition)


File Size: 8.74 Mb

Description
Like any other area in science, both the scope and depth of our knowledge of plant and crop physiology are rapidly expanding. Plant/crop physiologists are continuously making new discoveries. This phenomenon has resulted in the compilation of a large volume of information since the first edition of the Handbook of Plant and Crop Physiology was prepared and presented to scientists and professionals. The abundance of new data has necessitated that this unique, comprehensive source of information be revised to include all the new discoveries in the field. Like the first edition, the new edition of the Handbook of Plant and Crop Physiology is a unique, comprehensive, and complete collection of the topics in plant/crop physiology.

More than two-thirds of the material in the new edition is entirely new; these are included under new titles. The other one-third has been updated and substantially modified. This new edition consists of 12 parts while the first edition consisted of eight. Overall, about 80% of this book is new and a totally new volume has emerged.

The Handbook of Plant and Crop Physiology is needed to fill the gap in the available literature. In addition, it has long been recognized that physiological processes control plant growth and crop yields. Therefore, this handbook is prepared in a single volume to serve as a comprehensive resource and up-todate reference to effectively cover the information relevant to plant/crop physiology that is scattered among plant/crop physiology books as well as plant physiology journals.
