Description

This book represents a beginning toward a concensus on units, symbols, and terminology in the plant sciences. Written by 27 specialists and reviewed by several others, each discussion is condensed for easy reference, but still thorough enough to answer virtually any question concerning plant terminology. Principles are outlined and covered in readable text. Some chapters include formulas and definitions of specialized terms, while others include recommendations for suitable units. The appendices offer guidelines on presenting scientific data, such as principles of grammar, oral and poster presentations, and reporting on data from experiments that utilized growth chambers. Anyone involved in the plant sciences, particularly plant physiology, will find this an invaluable reference.

Back cover copy

This book, developed under the auspices of the International Association for Plant Physiology, provides a handy guide to preferred terminology, symbols, and units of measurement in the plant sciences. Some chapters include formulas and definitions of specialized terms, while others include recommendations for suitable units based on the International System for Units (SI). The appendices offer guidelines on presenting scientific data, including principles of grammar, standards for effective oral and poster presentations, and reporting on data from experiments that utilized growth chambers. Each chapter has been written by an expert and reviewed by several others; discussions are condensed for easy reference, but still thorough enough to answer virtually any question concerning plant terminology.

Review quote

a handy guide to preferred terminology, symbols, and units of measurements in the plant sciences, especially plant physiology ... This book is of very great value for all plant physiologists and other plant scientists who are preparing their research results for publication and other presentation; and this terminology book should find a place on many a plant scientist's desk ... this valuable and handy book can be recommended to students, graduate students and plant
wscientists alike. It is hoped that it will find a wide distribution also in general and botanical libraries. * Hartmut K. Lichtenthaler, Journal of Plant Physiology 151:6 * nifty reference work ... It is broadly useful beyond plant physiology ... this is a fine work, with much to inform and intrigue. * Jnl Int Assoc Plant Taxonomy * I believe the book will be of great importance and should find a place on many a plant scientists' desk-and maybe even some other broadminded souls. * Mary Bisson, Department of Biological Sciences, SUNY at Buffalo *
