Item description for Physiological Plant Ecology: Ecophysiology and Stress Physiology of Functional Groups by J. Wieser Walter Larcher...
A richly illustrated text now in its third edition, Physiological Plant Ecology explores the vital processes of plants in interaction with the environment. Focusing on the way different plant species and functional types react in various locations and in all climatic zones, this well-known text has been widely recognised for its clarity and accurate synthesis of a vast body of research. It offers insight into the laws governing the carbon, nitrogen, mineral and water balance as well as the development, vital capacity and adaptability of plants. Entirely revised and enlarged - while keeping the superb illustrations and tables that drew praise in earlier editions - it is ideal for students in biology, ecology and geography, and in agricultural and forestry sciences.

If you are interested in physiological ecology or plant ecology, get this book. I am using it for a graduate class and finding it a rewarding read. Larcher is able to combine both a breadth of knowledge and an ability to communicate these thoughts in a logical and simple manner. I should probably also thank the translator.
Walter made it easy and exciting !! Dec 12, 2003
I have seen reference of it in several publications and decided to put my hands on it. It's surely is a must for any terrestrial ecosystem scientists or ecologists. I would say, Walter's book is really just so exciting to read. Detailed in a lucid way with excellent sketches. Terrestrial ecology is also included by taking into account major world species. Easy to read and interlink with nicely sequenced sections and chapters. However, those specializing in tree physiology, Taiz's book may be better.
