In fundamental ways, the functioning of all living systems obeys the laws of physics and chemistry. This is true for all physiological processes that occur inside cells, tissues, organs, and organisms. This new edition of a classic text has been throughly revised while maintaining its unparalleled commitment to the clear presentation and student user-friendliness. Certain to maintain its leading role in the teaching of general and comparative physiological principles, Physicochemical and Environmental Plant Physiology, 2nd Edition establishes a new standard of excellence in the teaching of quantitative plant physiology.

Audience: Physiologists, plant scientists, ecologists, agronomists, and researchers in crop science, agriculture, plant development, and other related areas. The book should also appeal to animal physiologists because many of the chapters deal with general matters of physiology, comparative physiology, and general physiology.

Editorial Reviews

A primary objective of this text is to use elementary chemistry, physics, and mathematics to explain and develop concepts that are key to an understanding of various areas of plant physiology in particular and physiology in general. This version has evolved from three W.H. Freeman predecessors: Plant cell physiology; a physicochemical approach (1970), Introduction to biophysical plant physiology (1974), and Biophysical plant physiology and ecology (1983). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From the Publisher
“This edition represents the penultimate integration of the quantitative sciences within the field of plant physiology” - William K. Smith, Wake Forest University

"This volume...covers a number of principles in physics and physical chemistry relevant to the interaction of plants with their environment." - John A. Raven FRS FRSE, Boyd Baxter Professor of Biology, University of Dundee

“This book is an important starting point for anyone concerned with the response of plants to their physical environment.” - Harold Mooney, Stanford University

"The many small changes have improved the book without altering its essential rigor and scholarly appeal." - Gretchen North, Occidental College

"This thoroughly updated third edition can help both undergraduate and graduate students gain a solid foundation in plant physiology." - Eulogio Pimienta-Barrios, Universidad de Guadalajara, Mèxico

"I have used and recommended this text since it beginnings...." - Roger M. Spanswick, Cornell University

"If anyone is capable of helping readers develop this understanding, it is Park Nobel." - ECOLOGY, praise for the last edition
