About this book

As a pioneering work on plant electrophysiology, this exciting reference compiles new findings from the work of internationally renowned experts in the fields of electrophysiology, bio-electrochemistry, biophysics, signal transduction, phloem transport, tropisms, ion channels, plant electrochemistry, and membrane transport.

The book starts with a historical introduction to plant electrophysiology, followed by two distinct parts. The first one deals with methods in plant electrophysiology, including, amongst others, measuring membrane potentials and ion fluxes, path-clamp technique, and electrochemical sensors. The second part covers experimental results and their theoretical interpretation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Rainer Stahlberg gives a short and concise historical introduction to plant electrophysiology. … Taken together, valuable technical information about selected electrophysiological techniques and underlying theories is provided for interested students and specialized scientists. … it can be recommended to students and researchers looking for a guide to techniques around noninvasive ion flux measurements, other selected techniques, and insights into the diversity of electrophysiological events in plants." (Petra Dietrich, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 164 (11), 2007)
