Physiology of Woody Plants
This completely revised classic volume is an up-to-date synthesis of the intensive research devoted to woody plants. Intended primarily as a text for students and a reference for researchers, this interdisciplinary book should be useful to a broad range of scientists from agroforesters, agronomists, and arborists to plant pathologists, ecophysiologists, and soil scientists. Anyone interested in plant physiology will find this text invaluable. It includes supplementary chapter summaries and lists of general references. It provides a solid foundation of reference information. It is a thoroughly updated classic text/reference.

"...the book is an excellent review on what has been done in this field and a valuable source of knowledge for researchers, agronomists and foresters. The illustration of the book is adequately done by monochrome pictures especially in the structure related chapters and by diagrams redrawn from original papers with uniform labeling." --Wolfgang Ruhle, JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
