Woody plants such as trees have a significant economic and climatic influence on global economies and ecologies. This completely revised classic book is an up-to-date synthesis of the intensive research devoted to woody plants published in the second edition, with additional important aspects from the authors' previous book, Growth Control in Woody Plants. Intended primarily as a reference for researchers, the interdisciplinary nature of the book makes it useful to a broad range of scientists and researchers from agroforesters, agronomists, and arborists to plant pathologists and soil scientists. This third edition provides crutial updates to many chapters, including: responses of plants to elevated CO2; the process and regulation of cambial growth; photoinhibition and photoprotection of photosynthesis; nitrogen metabolism and internal recycling, and more. Revised chapters focus on emerging discoveries of the patterns and processes of woody plant physiology. * The only book to provide recommendations for the use of specific management practices and experimental procedures and equipment *Updated coverage of nearly all topics of interest to woody plant physiologists * Extensive revisions of chapters relating to key processes in growth, photosynthesis, and water relations * More than 500 new references * Examples of molecular-level evidence incorporated in discussion of the role of expansion proteins in plant growth; mechanism of ATP production by coupling factor in photosynthesis; the role of cellulose synthase in cell wall construction; structure-function relationships for aquaporin proteins

Orchids are often thought of as rare, fragile "objets d'art," existing only in steamy tropical forests or in the greenhouses of the well-to-do. In fact, orchids occur worldwide from the arctic tundra to Tierra del Fuego. Minnesota is the home of 43 native species of orchids, and Orchids of Minnesota is the only book devoted specifically to their life history and study. Orchids occur in every county in Minnesota and in essentially every terrestrial habitat type. Both a field guide and an illustrated flora of scholarly quality, Orchids of Minnesota includes a section on the biology of orchids (morphology, ecology, and geographical distribution), a key to the orchid genera and species, and a description of each of the state's 43 species. Welby R. Smith offers comprehensive descriptions and information on the specific habitat of each species and interesting facts of its natural history. In addition, the book provides a detailed line drawing and photograph, a North American range map, and a Minnesota county distribution map for each species. Although regional in its focus, Orchids of Minnesota will be of interest to both national and international audiences. The detailed pen-and-ink drawings by Vera Ming Wong are beautifully executed and botanically accurate, revealing that even the most common orchid species are uncommon when compared to other plants.
