about

This book provides an overview of how boreal and temperate tree species have adapted their annual development cycle to the seasonally varying climatic conditions.  Therefore,  the frost hardy dormant phase, and the susceptible growth phase, are synchronized with the seasonality of the climate.

The volume discusses the annual cycle, including various attributes such as timing of bud burst and other phenological events, seasonality of photosynthetic capacity or the frost hardiness of the trees.
 

During the last few decades dynamic ecophysiological models have been used increasingly in studies of the annual cycle, particularly when projecting the ecological effects of climate change.  The main emphasis of this volume is on combining modelling with experimental studies, and on the importance of the biological realism of the models.


Heikki Hänninen was born in Laukaa, Central Finland, in 1957. He studied ecology in Jyväskylä and forest science in Joensuu, where he received his PhD in 1990. He worked in various positions at the University of Joensuu (currently part of the University of Eastern Finland) until his appointment to Professor of Terrestrial Plant Ecology...

Editorial Reviews

"He clearly and succinctly distills the body of research in the field of ecophysiology as a way of documenting where research stands now and the direction it might head in the future. . The author reviews evolutionary aspects of ecophysiology and progresses from the individual tree to the effects that are made on whole forests and entire ecosystems. . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers and faculty." (M. K. Cleaveland, Choice, Vol. 54 (5), January, 2017)
