about

This book deals with photosynthesis and growth of plants/crops from an environmental engineering and environmental physics point of view. A theory to CO2 diffusion or photosynthesis of a single leaf, a plant, plant community and forests is applied and discussed in detail in this book. It would be of interest to horticulturists, agronomists, agricultural engineers, environmental ecologists and crop physiologists.
