Intended for researchers, teachers and students in plant physiology, physiological ecology, bioenergetics, cell biology, and agronomy, this text is the successor volume to "Biophysical Plant Physiology and Ecology" (W.H.Freeman, 1983). Revised, this updated book is based upon the growing quantity of plant research. Topics discussed include cell growth and water relations, membrane channels, mechanisms of active transport, and the bioenergetics of chloroplasts and mitochondria. Features include new or modified figures, over 190 new references, new appendices on constants and conversion factors, and solutions to problems. The author discusses water relations and ion transport for plant cells (diffusion, chemical potential gradients, solute movement in and out of plant cells), the interconnection of various energy forms (light, chlorophyll and accessory photosynthesis pigments, ATP/NADPH), and forms in which energy and matter enter and leave a plant (water vapour and carbon dioxide, energy budget analysis, and water movement from soil to plant to atmosphere).
