9780878932948: The Ecology of Plants, Second Edition

This thoroughly revised and updated book is now in full colour and augmented by many new illustrations and references. Brighter than ever, "The Ecology of Plants" covers a range of topics that you might find in a general ecology textbook, but with the focus on the interactions between plants and their environment over a range of scales. Throughout the text, human environmental influences are discussed, as well as the importance of evolutionary and other historical processes for current ecology.

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

Overall, The ecology of plants provides a useful and complete tool to teach plant ecology to undergraduate students. Therefore, I strongly recommend it. --Ingrid M. Parker, The Quarterly Review of Biology
