    From the reviews of the fourth edition: "The well known ... Walter Larcher recently appeared in its fourth English edition. ... all sections have been completely revised and updated with current state-of-the-art knowledge. ... As a new feature, the text of the 4th edition contains 12 boxes with short contributions ... . has already become an institution and its high value as textbook for students and as reference volume for scientists remains absolutely indisputable. ... a keystone textbook for any student, teacher and researcher in the field of plant ecology." (Wolfram Beyschlag, Phytocoenologica Intl. J. Vegetation Ecology, Vol. 34(1), 2004) "The new edition has been completely revised and updated with current state-of-the-art knowledge. New in the current edition are contributions by experienced experts ... . The complex of tables, schemes, illustrations, and particularly numerous references has clearly been prepared with care. This is, without a doubt, a valuable contribution, able to fully meet the needs of scholars, researchers and upper level students of plant physiology and ecology." (P.L. Pisani, Advances in Horticultural Science, Vol. 17(3), 2003) "This book has already become an institution in the domain, and serves as textbook for teaching and for initiating young scientists ... . This new edition has been revised in depth, and enriched by synthetic contributions ... . the book is one of the most useful introductions into the field and will be of interest for students as a very exhaustive overview. ... The different topics are very nicely illustrated and commented, and up to date literature ... ." (Erwin Dreyer, Annals of Forest Science, 2003) "The book was enlarged by extended new areas, gathered in the boxes, with separate references at the end of the book. The information there is a contribution of invited authors - experienced specialists in recent physiological and environmental research. ... The main structure of the book ... was left unchanged. ... The new list of abbreviations is more complete than the previous one. ... I can summarize with a very personal conclusion - it is still the best ecophysiological study book in my professional life." (Anna Dzierzynska, Acta Physiologiae Plantarum, Vol. 25(2), 2003)
