Overview

Traditional plant physiological ecology is organism centered and provides a useful framework for understanding the interactions between plants and their environment and for identifying characteristics likely to result in plant success in a particular habitat. This book focuses on extending concepts from plant physiological ecology as a basis for understanding carbon, energy, and biogeochemical cycles at ecosystem, regional, and global levels.
This will be a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students in ecology, plant ecophysiology, ecosystem research, biometerology, earth system science, and remote sensing.

Key Features
* The integration of metabolic activities across spatial scales, from leaf to ecosystem
* Global constraints and regional processes
* Functional units in ecological scaling
* Models and technologies for scaling

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Plant physiology is generally applied to investigations of organisms and their interaction with their immediate environment. Here, the principles are expanded to provide insight into the carbon, energy, and biogeochemical cycles at ecosystem, regional, and global levels. For researchers and graduate students in ecology or plant physiology, discusses such topics as the integration of metabolic activities across spatial scales, from the leaf to the ecosystem; global constraints and regional processes; and functional units, models, and technologies for the scaling procedure.
