9780044456858: Comparative Plant Ecology: A Functional Approach to Common British Species

This volume provides a standardized comparative account of the ecology of common British vascular plants, based on the authors' long experience of research into temperate-zone species. With the emphasis again on field surveys, an alphabetical sequence of accounts of 281 species - or groups of secies - includes a distillation of essential laboratory data and published information. The summary tables describing the fundamental ecology and biological characteriestics of all the common species of the British flora have also been retained in full. The edition should prove a useful guide to students, amateur naturalists and ecologists. Its practical relevance and accessible presentation should appeal to anyone interested in environmental and applied plant science and in the management, conservation, or reconstruction of herbaceous vegetation. This book should be of interest to advanced undergraduate students of plant ecology and plant science, professional ecologists, conservationists and resource managers.

The Times Higher Education Supplement
` Comparative Plant Ecology...should be in every laboratory concerned with British plants...'
Nature
