About this eBook

Preface Many standard textbooks are available dealing with the different aspects of plant physiology and ecophysiology which, however, are very large and exhaustive. Plant Ecophysiology A Glossary will allow the students with an instant access to important terminology. For many topics and aspects related to plant ecophysiology, the students may find the book as a 'ready reckoner' a useful revision aid and a stimulus for further study. The book is a comprehensive and self-contained work. The book has been prepared with an objective to be of use both for a layman and to a professional, however, in no way act as a replacement for specialist treatises. Authors shall welcome constructive criticism and shall put an effort to overcome the lapses and omissions in future. We would like to thank our families for forbearance during the preparation of the book and our students, interactions with whom for around three decades have helped us understand the subject. AUTHORS
