Editorial Reviews

"Lüttge and Beyschlag's book consists of three parts, two general reviews (Part I), eight articles summarizing specific topics in plant physiology (Part II), and five contributions dealing with plant ecology (Part III). . this volume should be of great interest for botanists, ecologists, evolutionary biologists, and historians of science." (Ulrich Kutschera, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 92 (2), June, 2017)
