Due to many issues related to long-term carbon dynamics, an improved understanding of the biology of C4 photosynthesis is required by more than the traditional audience of crop scientists, plant physiologists, and plant ecologists. This work synthesizes the latest developments in C4 biochemistry, physiology, systematics, and ecology. The book concludes with chapters discussing the role of C4 plants in the future development of the biosphere, particularly their interactive effects on soil, hydrological, and atmospheric processes.


Graduate students, faculty, and researchers in ecology, plant physiology, plant science, agronomy, and agricultural sciences.

Quotes and reviews

@qu:"The 16 chapters are well written and thoroughly documented reviews with more than 100 references in many and a few carefully chosen tables or figures in each. A well-produced work in a series on physiological ecology, this volume should serve for years as a resource to specialists in a wide range of areas, as well as a resource for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students, their faculty, and professionals."
@source:--L.C. Davis in CHOICE (July 1999)
