Stress Physiology of Woody Plants

£104.00

Woody Plants have distinct growth and development habits. Being sessile and perennial species, woody plants are challenged by multiple stresses year-round or facing repeated stress attacks during their lives. A stress challenge in one season may impact the plant performance in other seasons or years, therefore woody plants must develop specific mechanisms to minimise the damage caused by various stresses.

Written by a group of experts, this book is compromised of 11 chapters profoundly describing the uniqueness of plant structure, growth and development, photosynthesis and respiration, and growth regulation in woody species.

This book serves as a textbook and major reference by students and researchers of plant physiology, horticulture, forestry, and plant molecular biology and teaches a better understanding of plant response to individual or combined stresses in woody species.

  • Provides a comprehensive review of physiological and molecular aspects of woody plants responding to some major environmental stresses
  • Bridges the gap between woody and herbaceous species in the field of general physiology and stress physiology
  • Describes the uniqueness of woody plants in plant structure, growth and development, photosynthesis and respiration, and growth regulation
  • Summarises physiological and molecular responses to the environmental stresses in woody plants
