Key Features

* Provides a view of crop physiology as an active source of methods, theories, ideas and tools for application in genetic improvement and agronomy

* Written by leading scientists from around the world with publication records of demonstrable influence and impact

* Combines environment-specific cropping systems and general principles of crop science to appeal to advanced students and scientists in agriculture-related disciplines, from molecular sciences to natural resources management


Never before has a holistic approach to sustainable agriculture and plant physiology been presented in one source.

This book compiles a multi-authored and international perspective on the ways in which crop physiology could be integrated with other disciplines. With a focus on genetic improvement and agronomy, this book addresses the challenges of environmentally sound production of bulk and quality food, fodder, fiber and energy, which are of ongoing international concern.


Agronomists; plant geneticists and plant breeding professionals; crop physiologists, ecologists, and ecophysiologists; plant physiologists
