This third edition has been completely revised and updated to take into account key developments in this field. This detailed yet accessible text introduces the key physical and biochemical processes involved in plant interactions with the aerial environment. Aims to make the more numerical aspects of the subject accessible to plant and environmental science students, and provide a valuable reference source to practitioners and researchers in the field. Approximately half of the references are new to this edition and relevant online resources are also incorporated for the first time. The recent proliferation of molecular and genetic research on plants is related to whole plant responses, showing how these new approaches can advance our understanding of the biophysical interactions between plants and the atmosphere. Remote sensing technologies and their applications in the study of plant function are also covered in greater detail.
