This textbook covers general ecology, but with the focus on the interactions between plants and their environment over a range of scales. It also emphasizes the importance of evolutionary and other historical processes for contemporary ecology. While the book is written for an undergraduate course in plant ecology, its style, coverage of the field, and contemporary perspective make it accessible and useful to others, from conservation biologists to evolutionary biologists.

JESSICA GUREVITCH, State University of New York at Stony Brook USA. - SAMUEL M. SCHEINER, Arizona State University USA. - GORDON A. FOX, University of South Florida USA.Review:
"This is the only volume I have seen that contains a good treatment of evolutionary and physiological ecology, as well as more traditional topics such as competition and herbivory, vegetation types, and biomes. Overall, this useful book, beautifully laid out and well written, fills an important gap in the educational literature on plant ecology. It is up to date and quantitatively sophisticated, and it provides a nice balance between presentation of facts and concepts and narration of evocative examples. I plan to continue to use this volume in my course and recommend it highly."--Ingrid M. Parker, The Quarterly Review of Biology
