  • Fully revised and updated 2nd edition
  • A wealth of new detail that brings in all the latest developments in the field
  • Covers all major tropical ecosystems from tropical forests to savannas, salinas, inselbergs and páramos

Since the publication of the first edition of this book ten years ago, international research into the physiological ecology of plants in the tropics has increased enormously in quantity and quality.

This brand new edition brings the story right up to date. New approaches have been developed in remote sensing.

At the other end of the scale, molecular biology has come on in leaps and bounds, particularly regarding ecological performance of tropical plants, e.g. in understanding the adaptation of resurrection plants to the extreme habitat of inselbergs.

In this fully revised and updated second edition the wealth of new information has made it necessary to break large chapters down into smaller ones.

Tropical forests which occupy about half of the entire volume of the book are now arranged in five chapters covering structure and function under the influence of environmental cues and including epiphytes and mangroves as part of the tropical forest complex.

Savannas are now treated in two chapters. Meanwhile, coastal salinas have been combined with a new section on the Brazilian restingas in a chapter on coastal sand plains.
