Overview

This book builds an integrated understanding of the central role that vascular transport plays in coordinating physiological processes at the whole plant level. In doing so it overturns the notion that vascular transport tissues are merely plumbing—essential, but dull. Although clearly essential in moving materials from one end of the plant to the other, plant vascular systems are important in allowing these fundamentally decentralized organisms to function in a coordinated manner. In this volume, we see how the two transport issues—the water conducting xylem and the carbohydrate conducting phloem—work together to integrate material transport and information transmission. Beginning with the molecular level basics of transport physiology, the text then extends to whole plant function and environmental physiology, ecology and evolution, allowing the reader to develop an understanding of vascular transport across multiple scales. The book is unique in discussing xylem and phloem transport processes in plants in a unified and comparative style that emphasizes the important interactions between these two parallel systems.

VASCULAR TRANSPORT IN PLANTS will be a valuable resource and reference for researchers and graduate level students in physiology, molecular biology, physiology, ecology, ecological physiology, development, and all applied disciplines related to agriculture, horticulture, forestry and biotechnology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...easy to read and reference......I'm confident that this volume will be referred to frequently in my research and teaching."
-Jack B. Fisher, for ANNALS OF BOTANY

"This book is a valuable contribution...should be of great value to workers involved in all aspects of transport in plants..."
-Nicholas W. Lepp, School of Biological and Earth Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University, for JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

"...a source of inspiration for further research. It is a worthy addition to the library of researchers."
-John W. Patrick, The University of Newcastle, Australia, in PLANT SCIENCE 2005

"...the contributions are excellent and provide a good overview of current topics...a must for all those who are studying or working on the different aspects of vascular transport."
