About this book

This book shows the complexity of plant signaling and behavior in an ecological context and is intended to increase our understanding of it. It reflects the multifaceted interactions between plants and other organisms that affect their growth and development. In addition it puts emphasis on the effects of plant signaling and behavior on other trophic levels. This field of research is growing and developing rapidly, and new findings are regularly reported. Thus, this book provides a broader view of the field and represents a valuable reference work on the current state of research.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book describes recent developments in the evolutionary ecology of plant communication, a relatively recent and rapidly developing topic worthy of synthesis. … this book is written in a pleasant style and gives many up-to-date examples. It will be a useful source of information for graduate students and other researchers looking for a concise overview of current work in the evolutionary ecology of plant communication.” (Martine Hossaert-McKey, Annals of Botany, Vol. 111 (2), February, 2013)

“This relatively tiny book provides a wide audience with a good insight into recent progresses in the field of plant communication. … the book is a handy collation that might be useful for many plant ecologists and researchers.” (Jan Pergl, Folia Geobotanica, Vol. 48, 2013)
