The new edition of Physicochemical and Environmental Plant Physiology uses elementary chemistry, physics, and mathematics to explain and develop key concepts in plant physiology. In fundamental ways, all physiological processes that occur in cells, tissues, organs, and organisms obey such relations. Topics include diffusion, membranes, water relations, ion transport, photochemistry, bioenergetics of energy conversion, photosynthesis, environmental influences on plant temperature, and gas exchange for leaves and whole plants. This new edition maintains the unparalleled commitment to clear presentation and improves upon the user friendliness of the previous versions.

Review quote

"This edition represents the penultimate integration of the quantitative sciences within the field of plant physiology" - William K. Smith, Wake Forest University

"This volume...covers a number of principles in physics and physical chemistry relevant to the interaction of plants with their environment." - John A. Raven FRS FRSE, Boyd Baxter Professor of Biology, University of Dundee

"This book is an important starting point for anyone concerned with the response of plants to their physical environment." - Harold Mooney, Stanford University

"The many small changes have improved the book without altering its essential rigor and scholarly appeal." - Gretchen North, Occidental College

"This thoroughly updated third edition can help both undergraduate and graduate students gain a solid foundation in plant physiology." - Eulogio Pimienta-Barrios, Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico

"I have used and recommended this text since it beginnings...." - Roger M. Spanswick, Cornell University

"If anyone is capable of helping readers develop this understanding, it is Park Nobel." - ECOLOGY, praise for the last edition
