Description of Handbook of Plant and Crop Physiology

Like any other area in science, both the scope and depth of our knowledge on crop and plant physiology are rapidly expanding. Plant/crop physiologists are continuously making new discoveries. This phenomenon has resulted in the compilation of a large volume of information since the second edition of the Handbook of Crop and Plant Physiology was published. The abundance of new data has necessitated an updated edition, which includes, as much as possible, the latest discoveries in the field. Like the first and second editions, this edition is a unique, comprehensive, and complete collection of topics in the field of plant or crop physiology.
