Physiology of Woody Plants, Fourth Edition has been fully revised and updated to include the significant progress that has been made in multiple fields of tree physiology, including woody plant responses to globally changing environments, role of woody plants in biosphere-atmosphere interactions, and generalized trait-function relationship, including the multiple specialized and insightful contributions on individual facets of tree functioning and rich genetic information that has become available since the publication of the third edition. The genome of P. trichocarpa has been re-sequenced ten times to assure the highest quality, and genomic sequences have become available for 38 woody species. Armed with this new knowledge, novel insight into functioning of multiple physiological processes in woody plants has been achieved and is presented here. The fourth edition includes both the classical concepts and recent developments in the field of tree physiology and addresses a broad audience interested in gaining a basic understanding of woody plant functioning as well as those willing to refresh their knowledge of developments at the forefront of tree physiology. Providing a basic interdisciplinary understanding of the controls of climatic and biotic factors responsible for tree growth in current and future climates Physiology of Woody Plants is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as as a reference source for practitioners and researchers seeking to learn about different aspects of tree functioning.

Author Biography

UElo Niinemets, Ph.D. focuses on the Importance of structural features of leaves and canopy in determining species shade-tolerance in temperate deciduous woody taxa (Importance of structural features of leaves and canopy in determining species shade-tolerance in temperate deciduous woody taxa). He serves as the Chair and Professor of Crop Sciences and Plant Biology at Estonian University of Life Sciences. Selected Honours & awards 2018, UElo Niinemets, National Science Prize, Bio- and geosciences 2012, UElo Niinemets, White Star Order, IV class by the President of Estonia 2011, UElo Niinemets, Best paper award (Ecological Research) of the Japanese Ecological Society 2006, UElo Niinemets, National Science Prize in Chemistry and molecular biology 2000, UElo Niinemets, National Science Prize, Bio- and geosciences Selected Scientific Activities 2012-... Science Europe Life, Environment and Geoscience (LEGS) scientific committee member 2012-... Editor of Oecologia 2010-... Editor of Frontiers in Plant Science (Frontiers in Functional Plant Ecology) Stephen Pallardy's research interests include the physiological responses of plants to water stress and comparative water relations, and the mechanisms by which seedlings of selected woody species and ecotypes are able to resist drought stress more effectively than others. The underlying motivation for that research included understanding how selective pressures that are associated with xeric habitats influence the evolution of drought adaptations among and within species and potential genetic improvements as a result.
