Ecophysiology of Coniferous Forests

Ecophysiology of Coniferous Forests

Conifers-pine, fir, and spruce trees-are dominant species in forests around the world. This book focuses on the physiology of conifers and how physiological systems operate. Special consideration is devoted to the means by which ecophysiological processes influence organismal function and distribution. Chapters focus on the genetics of conifers, their growth and geographic distribution and the factors that influence this distribution, the impact of insect herbivory and winter dormancy on ecophysiological parameters, the effects of air pollution, and the potential impact that global climatic changes will have upon conifers. With the growing realization that forests have a crucial role to play in global environmental health, this book will appeal to a developing union of ecologists, physiologists and theoretical foresters.
