Summary From the reviews of the 3rd edition: "The textbook of Walter Larcher (...) belongs certainly to the most successful manuals that ever existed." "(Photosynthetica, Czech Republic)" "(...) it continues to be one of the major texts in the field of ecophysiology.""(Plant Growth Regulation, The" "Netherlands)" "This book is really a must reading for those interested in sustainable forestry." "(Journal of Sustainable" "Forestry," "USA)" "The book, (...), should be on the shelf of any scientist, teacher, or student seeking an introduction to the field of plant ecophysiology that is also an excellent reference." "(The Quarterly Review of Biology, USA)"
Subject Plant ecophysiology.
