The book addresses the compelling demand for quantitative training in plant biology, including comparisons of the rate of processes, the size of structures and interactions among different processes, approached at different levels from molecules to the environment. Attention is paid to aspects of modern molecular biology and to modern biophysical treatments of classical transport and circulatory problems. This will allow the reader to become familiar with calculus as a tool to understand plant science. The book discusses specific problems covering six specific topics, and includes an additional section devoted to miscellaneous issues. It is also complemented by appendices describing units, conversion factors, formulae and data relevant to plant biology and to the relationship of plants with the environment.

"This book is a good collection of exercises for students to illustrate fascinating physiological processes in plants. Some results are breathtaking even for a scientist focused on plant biology. I highly recommend the book Calculus in Plant Science to all teachers and students in universities as a good material complementary to the lectures about plant physiology. It is also useful for research scientists to read this book in order to critically consider all biological processes."Sylva PrerostovaInstitute of Experimental Botany, Czech Academy of Sciences
