The Ecology of Plants provides comprehensive, contemporary coverage of plant ecology. Now in its third edition, the text incorporates current scientific developments and includes hundreds of stunning photographs, insightful illustrations, and references. It also features a clean, modern design that makes the material accessible and appealing. The book covers a range of current and historical ecological topics, presented in an evolutionary context, with the focus on the interactions between plants and their environments over a range of scales.

New to this Edition:

  • Includes new developments and ideas, as well as new evaluations of older work
  • An enlivened art program provides new, updated, and redrawn illustrations and photos
  • A redesigned layout with a clean, modern design makes the material accessible and appealing
  • Materials have been reorganized, consolidated, and developed in certain sections to include a fuller treatment: the section on how to think about and quantify diversity has been updated and consolidated into a single chapter, and the explanations of Earth's climate and climate change have been integrated, sharpened, and made clearer
