Plants and Vegetation: Origins, Processes, Consequences
This new introductory textbook integrates important classical themes of plant ecology with recent ideas, models and data. The book begins with the origins of plants and their role in creating the biosphere, as the context for discussing plant functional types and evolutionary patterns and concludes with a chapter on conservation, addressing the concern of plant extinction. Each chapter is enriched with striking and unusual examples of plants and their habitats. Paul Keddy's lively and thought-provoking style will appeal to students at all levels.
