A new and very much expanded edition of an earlier work by Hale and Orcutt, this present edition covers such new areas as growth analysis, pollution, phytopathogens and herbivore response to plants. This important and comprehensive book has a variety of uses as a textbook for plant physiology, plant pathology and plant Eco physiology classes and as a reference for students and scholars in a diversity of botanical fields, especially scholars interpreting the significance of their research to broader issues in plant science. Soil Processes and Plant Stress Physiology, Biotic Factors and Plant Stress Physiology, Anthropogenic Induced Stresses.
