This text is the first to fully integrate the fields of plant population ecology, population genetics and evolutionary biology. Developed from many years of teaching experience, with plentiful illustrations, this clear and simple exposition provides an excellent introduction to the field. Effectively, it is a radically updated and expanded third edition of Jonathan Silvertown's earlier book, Introduction to Plant Population Ecology.

Reviews of the fourth edition:
"This book covers topics in depth and is really outstanding; it is also one of the best-written textbooks of any kind that I have ever read. I've owned all four editions of this book, which has undergone considerable evolution as co-authors have come and gone, and it has always been very clear, concise, readable and full of ideas." Professor Don Drake, University of Hawaii
"...the fourth edition...is still doing a good job of filling its expanded niche as a concise and engaging up-to-date introduction to plant population ecology and evolution written by two knowledgeable leaders in the field" D. Lawrence Venable, University of Arizona, American Journal of Botany 90 (1) 2003.
Reviews of the Third Edition:
"In upgrading this text, Silvertown and Lovett Doust have performed an important service for plant population biologists, plant ecologists, and others needing an introduction to this fast-growing field. the only book available to accompany an upper-level or beginning graduate course in plant population biology, and it fits in niche well. Plant ecologists are likely to find this book useful as a reference." Review from previous edition, BioScience 1995
"Plant population biology is both desperately important and subtly complex, forming the basis for much ecological work, and the authors are to be congratulated in managing to cram an enormous amount of detail into this wide-ranging text, [...] The use of contemporary examples helps to give the book a fresh and urgent appeal. It should be useful reading for undergraduates whose courses have a plant ecology component, but will also provide a very succinct introduction for postgraduates moving into this field."
Roger Delpech, Journal of Biological Education, 2002, 36(4)
"The clarity of text, plentiful examples and extensive literature survey make this book indispensable for all students of population biology." Folia Geobotanica, 2002, (37)
