The arctic region is predicted to experience the earliest and most pronounced global warming response to human-induced climatic change. This book synthesizes information on the physiological ecology of arctic plants, discusses how physiological processes influence ecosystem processes, and explores how climate warming will affect arctic plants, plant communities, and ecosystem processes.

Key Features
* Reviews the physiological ecology of arctic plants
* Explores biotic controls over community and ecosystems processes
* Provides physiological bases for predicting how the Arctic will respond to global climate change

Review:

"This book will serve as an excellent introduction to and synthesis of the current status of knowledge, and it is timely in anticipation of new Arctic ecological research efforts proposed by a number of agencies... One of its strengths is the selection of authors... The book is timely, because the time when warming may become an observed reality is close, and this synthesis will be of great value in the planning and conduct of related research. It is a book for the practicing biological scientist rather than the policy maker of even the generalist."
