The field of plant physiological ecology seeks to understand how organisms are adapted to their environment. The field has expanded rapidly in recent years, driven by the need to understand how plants and ecosystems are affected by environmental changes wrought by humans and by advances in molecular biology. This second edition (1st ed., CH, May'99, 36-5084), written by expert physiological ecologists Lambers (Univ. of Western Australia, Perth), Chapin (Univ. of Alaska, Fairbanks), and Pons (Utrecht Univ., Netherlands), provides an updated treatment of the subject. The new volume offers significant improvements over the first edition, such as the addition of color figures and an extensive and current literature cited section. Most of the book covers classical topics in plant physiological ecology, including water and carbon relations, energy balance, and mineral nutrition. The latter portion covers biotic influences on plants, and plant physiology in an ecosystem and global context. This book would make an excellent resource for undergraduate or graduate courses in plant physiological ecology, and it is an essential reference for professional ecologists and plant physiologists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, faculty, and professionals. R. B. Pratt California State University--Bakersfield
