Newly updated, Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology, Fourth Edition provides an current, thorough overview of the fundamentals of botany. The topics and chapters are organized in a sequence that is easy to follow, beginning with the most familiar -- structure -- and proceeding to the less familiar -- metabolism -- then finishing with those topics that are probably the least familiar to most beginning students -- genetics, evolution, the diversity of organisms, and ecology. Important Notice: The digital edition of this book is missing some of the images or content found in the physical edition.

Unlike most books on economic botany this is not an encyclopedic listing of plants and their uses. Instead it is an attempt at understanding why plants are used. Economic botany is a multidisciplinary study and the purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to some of the scientific principles, processes, and practices involved. The subjects discussed include the role of economic and ethnobotany, plant collecting, taxonomy and nomenclature, the environment and the physiological, morphological and anatomical adaptations of the plant thereto, plant conservation, plant breeding and propagation, the marketing of crops and crop products, basic human and animal nutrition, human and animal foods, desirable insect foods, timber and wood products, fuel, fibres, biochemicals, human and veterinary medicine, plant toxins, lower plants and their products, the role of plants in ameliorating the environment, and the social uses of plants. it is hoped that this book will appeal to both the student and practitioner, irrespective of their primary discipline.

The most respected reference in the field--and a fascinating tourof the world's largest underwater greenhouse . . . MARINE BOTANY Second Edition Unmatched in detail and breadth, this Second Edition of MarineBotany explores the startling diversity and environmental dynamicsof the hundreds of micro- and macroalgae, seagrasses, mangroves,and salt marshes as well as phytoplankton (minute, free-floatingphotosynthetic plants) and benthic communities (attached plants)that comprise the flourishing botanical garden submerged in andaround the surface of our vast oceans. Reflecting the latest in research since the original 1981 edition,long considered the classic reference on marine plant life, thisnew edition's enhanced ecological perspective details the ongoingenvironmental challenges endured by these fragile life-forms.Viewing the structure and function of marine plant communities inthe context of abiotic (light, temperature, water movement,nutrients), biotic (photosynthesis, carbon fixation, competition,predation, symbiosis), and anthropogenic influences, the book moveslayer by layer through the ocean, capturing their photosyntheticand adaptive mechanisms. Pollution in the form of oil spills, heavyand radioactive metals, biological damage wrought from harvestingand aquaculture, and the harmful effects of ozone depletion andUV-B rays are detailed, along with the impact of environmentalfactors on morphological and anatomical adaptations. The book alsodescribes the anthropogenic stresses endured by salt marshes,mangals, seagrass communities, and marine plants of coral reefs,concluding with possible management and restorativetechniques. Marine Botany, Second Edition is both a vivid global map andcomprehensive guide to all of the flourishing forms of plant lifeat our oceans' surface, shores, and depths and the dynamics oftheir survival.

Botany is the fundamental of plants life science from seed to a giant tree. It is the branch of biology which study of fruits and flowering plants are all there biochemical processes, structures, classification, evolution, physiology and the diseases when plants and trees interact with environment. In the book the text providing to guide with the latest content on plant life, plant biotechnology, and the most recent coverage of physiology and reproduction of plants to stay readers on the forefront of cutting-edge in this biological field. Botany: The life of Plants, clearly understanding about plant families also guides us to make intellectual value of the massive biological diversity of the plant kingdom.
