Product description

Plant physiology - the structure of plants- is often perceived as complex and difficult. Yet it need not be. In this comprehensive yet concise guide, we tackle topics in straightforward bite-sized chunks, consolidating each one before moving on to the next. This will save you valuable revision time by helping you to learn more easily and quickly and tackle coursework and examinations with greater confidence. There are 'tutorials' at the end of each chapter to help you improve your learning with practice questions, discussion points, practical assignments and study and revision tips. It is complete with a glossary, a guide to web sites for biology students and a detailed index. This new edition of this book has been specially written for students wanting a clear and concise introduction to this fast-developing field, whether for A and AS Level core and modular courses in Biology, Human Biology and Social Biology, or for first year degree courses in life sciences. It will also be of interest to agriculture and horticulture students and medical and microbiology students.
