Principles of Plant Science: Environmental Factors and Technology in Growing Plantsis a unique text ideally suited for use in any introductoryPlant ScienceorHorticulturecourse as well as courses inPlant Growth and Developmentor introductoryApplied Plant Physiology. An overview of the plant sciences--including the role of plants in the development of societies, industries, and science--provides essential background information and an emphasis on non-forest agricultural crops in chapters 1 through 4. A primer on plant growth and development (chapters 5 through 8) follows, with coverage of photosynthesis and respiration, plant hormones, and ecology. The influence of the environment on agricultural plant production constitutes the remainder of the material (Chapters 9 through 20) and is the primary emphasis of the text. This emphasis on the scientific principles associated with effects of environmental factors on plant development is designed to also equip readers to better understand current and emerging technologies that modify the environment for improving plant production.Decoteau, Dennis R. is the author of 'Principles Of Plant Science Environmental Factors And Technology In Growing Plants', published 2004 under ISBN 9780130163011 and ISBN 0130163015.
