9780126528701: Resource Physiology of Conifers: Acquisition, Allocation, and Utilization (Physiological Ecology)

Coniferous forests are among the most important of ecosystems. These forests are widespread and influence both the financial and biological health of our globe. This book focuses attention on conifers and how these trees acquire, allocate, and utilize the resources that sustain this crucial productivity. An international team of experts has surveyed and synthesized information from an expanding area of inquiry. The first half of the book describes how resources are acquired both by means of photosynthesis and through root systems. The latter half of the volume focuses upon how resources are stored and used. As conifers continue as a resource and ever increasingly important contributor to the regional and global environmental sustainability, this book will help establish how much sustainability can be expected and maintained.

From the Back Cover:

Coniferous forests are among the most important of ecosystems; they are widespread and influence both the financial and biological health of the Earth. This book focuses on how these trees acquire, allocate, and utilize the resources that sustain this crucial productivity. An international team of experts has surveyed and synthesized information from an expanding area of inquiry. In the first half, the book describes how resources are acquired both by means of photosynthesis and through root systems. The latter half focuses on how resources are stored and used.
As conifers continue to be a resource and an ever increasingly important contributor to the regional and global environmental sustainability, this book will help establish how much sustainability can be expected and maintained.

Review:

"The book contains a wealth of quantitative information on the physiological attributes of conifers... thorough and expert analyses of the most important aspects of conifer physiology... the writing is comprehensive and up to date because of the combined efforts of 28 leading researchers of plant ecophysiology."
--T. T. Kozlowski, University of California Berkeley, in BIOSCIENCE
"These books are highly recommended additions to the literature on conifers. They contain a treasure trove of information, and a strong editorial hand has brought an unusual degree of symmetry and evenness of treatment to the topics. It is easy to find one's way around each chapter and either to browse or to focus... Both books will find substantial use for physiological ecologist and others interested in conifers and forest ecology."
--TRENDS IN ECOLOGY & EVOLUTION
"The book contains a wealth of quantitative information on the physiological attributes of conifers... The writing is comprehensive and up to date because of the combined efforts of 28 leading researchers of plant ecophysiology--no chapter was written by a single author. The book is likely to be welcomed by investigators attempting to unravel the complexities inherent in biological diversity, global warming, and responses of forest ecosystems to abiotic and biotic stresses."
--BIOSCIENCE
