9780120884575: Vascular Transport in Plants (Physiological Ecology)

Vascular Transport in Plants provides an up-to-date synthesis of new research on the biology of long distance transport processes in plants. It will be a valuable resource and reference for researchers and graduate level students in physiology, molecular biology, physiology, ecology, ecological physiology, development, and all applied disciplines related to agriculture, horticulture, forestry and biotechnology. The book considers long-distance transport from the perspective of molecular level processes to whole plant function, allowing readers to integrate information relating to vascular transport across multiple scales. The book is unique in presenting xylem and phloem transport processes in plants together in a comparative style that emphasizes the important interactions between these two parallel transport systems.

* Includes 105 exceptional figures
* Discusses xylem and phloem transport in a single volume, highlighting their interactions
* Syntheses of structure, function and biology of vascular transport by leading authorities
* Poses unsolved questions and stimulates future research
* Provides a new conceptual framework for vascular function in plants

Book Description:

A new perspective on the vascular systems of plants.

From the Back Cover:

This book builds an integrated understanding of the central role that vascular transport plays in coordinating physiological processes at the whole plant level. In doing so it overturns the notion that vascular transport tissues are merely plumbing--essential, but dull. Although clearly essential in moving materials from one end of the plant to the other, plant vascular systems are important in allowing these fundamentally decentralized organisms to function in a coordinated manner. In this volume, we see how the two transport issues--the water conducting xylem and the carbohydrate conducting phloem--work together to integrate material transport and information transmission. Beginning with the molecular level basics of transport physiology, the text then extends to whole plant function and environmental physiology, ecology and evolution, allowing the reader to develop an understanding of vascular transport across multiple scales. The book is unique in discussing xylem and phloem transport processes in plants in a unified and comparative style that emphasizes the important interactions between these two parallel systems.

VASCULAR TRANSPORT IN PLANTS will be a valuable resource and reference for researchers and graduate level students in physiology, molecular biology, physiology, ecology, ecological physiology, development, and all applied disciplines related to agriculture, horticulture, forestry and biotechnology.
