Woody plants such as trees have a significant economic and climatic influence on global economies and ecologies. This completely revised classic book is an up-to-date synthesis of the intensive research devoted to woody plants published in the second edition, with additional important aspects from the authors' previous book, "Growth Control in Woody Plants". Intended primarily as a reference for researchers, the interdisciplinary nature of the book makes it useful to a broad range of scientists and researchers from agroforesters, agronomists, and arborists to plant pathologists and soil scientists. This third edition provides crutial updates to many chapters, including: responses of plants to elevated CO2; the process and regulation of cambial growth; photoinhibition and photoprotection of photosynthesis; nitrogen metabolism and internal recycling, and more.Revised chapters focus on emerging discoveries of the patterns and processes of woody plant physiology. This is the only book to provide recommendations for the use of specific management practices and experimental procedures and equipment. Interdisciplinary approach will appeal to a broad range of scientists, researchers, and growers. It is thoroughly updated with the latest research devoted to woody plants.
