About The Book
Details Physiology and Behavior of Plants looks at plants and how they sense and respond to their environment. It takes the traditional plant physiology book into a new dimension by demonstrating how the biochemical observations underlie the behavior of the plant. In many ways the book parallels courses studied at university on animal physiology and behavior. The plant has to meet the same challenges as an animal to survive, but overcomes these challenges in very different ways. Students learn to think of plants not only as dynamic organisms, but aggressive, territorial and capable of long-range communication.
