This book explains how plants establish symbioses with other living organisms such as bacteria and fungi, with more detailed developments on mycorrhizae and nitrogen-fixing nodules. Illustrated by numerous diagrams and with summaries at the end of every chapter, it is ideal for rapid acquisition or review of basic knowledge of symbiosis ecophysiology.
This work traces the complex relations established by the plants with their biotic (all living organisms) and abiotic (climate, for example) environment. It addresses the main aspects of these relations and suggests a few notions of ecology to explain the importance of plants in all the ecosystems.
This book is a highly-condensed work full of illustrations depicting the majority of fundamental notions about plant physiology. It retraces the broad outlines of the evolution of plants before addressing various aspects of the descriptive plant biology, from the plant cell to the architecture of flowering plants and from photosynthesis to plant reproduction
