California's Fading Wildflowers: Lost Legacy and Biological
by Richard A. Minnich

Early Spanish explorers in the late eighteenth century found springtime California covered with spectacular carpets of wildflowers from San Francisco to San Diego. Yet today, invading plant species have devastated this nearly forgotten botanical heritage. In this lively, vividly detailed work, Richard A. Minnich synthesizes a unique and wide-ranging array of sources--from the historic accounts of those early explorers to the writings of early American botanists in the nineteenth century, newspaper accounts in the twentieth century, and modern ecological theory--to give the most comprehensive historical analysis available of the dramatic transformation of California's wildflower prairies. At the same time, his groundbreaking book challenges much current thinking on the subject, critically evaluating the hypothesis that perennial bunchgrasses were once a dominant feature of California's landscape and instead arguing that wildflowers filled this role. As he examines the changes in the state's landscape over the past three centuries, Minnich brings new perspectives to topics including restoration ecology, conservation, and fire management in a book that will change our of view of native California.

Fundamentals of Weed Science

This book addresses herbicides and their use as an important aspect of modern weed management,and strives to place them in an ecological framework. Many weed scientists believe agriculture is a continuing struggle with weeds - without good weed control, good and profitable agriculture is impossible. Each agricultural discipline sees itself as central to agriculture's success and continued progress, and weed science is no exception. While not denying the importance of weed management to successful agriculture, this book places it in a larger ecological context. The roles of culture, economics, and politics in weed management are also discussed, enabling scientists and students to understand the larger effects on society.

New to this Edition:
  • Information on New herbicides included, along with the old herbicides that are important for understanding the history.
  • New section on weed resistance to herbicides and genetic engineering.
  • New information on invasive plants.
  • Expanded chapters on Biological Control, Pesticide Legislation and Regulation, Weed Management Systems, and more.

Marschner's Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants (3RD ed.)
Marschner, Petra (Editor)

Respected and known worldwide in the field for his research in plant nutrition, Dr. Horst Marschner authored two editions of "Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants." His research greatly advanced the understanding of rhizosphere processes and trace element uptake by plants and he published extensively in a variety of plant nutrition areas. While doing agricultural research in West Africa in 1996, Dr. Marschner contracted malaria and passed away, and until now this legacy title went unrevised. Despite the passage of time, it remains the definitive reference on plant mineral nutrition. Great progress has been made in the understanding of various aspects of plant nutrition and in recent years the view on the mode of action of mineral nutrients in plant metabolism and yield formation has shifted. Nutrients are not only viewed as constituents of plant compounds (constructing material), enzymes and electron transport chains but also as signals regulating plant metabolism via complex signal transduction networks. In these networks, phytohormones also play an important role. Principles of the mode of action of phytohormones and examples of the interaction of hormones and mineral nutrients on source and sink strength and yield formation are discussed in this edition. Phytohormones have a role as chemical messengers (internal signals) to coordinate development and responses to environmental stimuli at the whole plant level. These and many other molecular developments are covered in the long-awaited new edition. Esteemed plant nutrition expert and Horst Marschner s daughter, Dr. Petra Marschner, together with a team of key co-authors who worked with Horst Marschner on his research, now present a thoroughly updated and revised third edition of Marschner s Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants, maintaining its value for plant nutritionists worldwide.

A long-awaited revision of the standard reference on plant mineral nutrition

Plant Cell Biology
By Randy O. Wayne

Plant Cell Biology is a semester long course for undergraduates and graduate students which integrates mathematics and physics, two years of chemistry, genetics, biochemistry and evolution disciplines. Having taught this course for over ten years, the author uses his expertise to relate the background established in plant anatomy, plant physiology, plant growth and development, plant taxonomy, plant biochemistry, and plant molecular biology courses to plant cell biology. This integration attempts to break down the barrier so plant cell biology is seen as an entrée into higher science.

Distinguishing this book from papers that are often used for teaching the subject which use a single plant to demonstrate the techniques of molecular biology, this book covers all aspects of plant cell biology without emphasizing any one plant, organelle, molecule, or technique. Although most examples are biased towards plants, basic similarities between all living eukaryotic cells (animal and plant) are recognized and used to best illustrate for students cell processes.

Plant Form
by Adrian D. Bell, Alan Bryan

The ideal reference for students of botany and horticulture, gardeners, and naturalists.

The diverse external shapes and structures that make up flowering plants can be bewildering and even daunting, as can the terminology used to describe them. An understanding of plant form—plant morphology—is essential to appreciating the wonders of the plant world and to the study of botany and horticulture at every level. In this ingeniously designed volume, the complex subject becomes both accessible and manageable. The first part of the book describes and clearly illustrates the major plant structures that can be seen with the naked eye or a hand lens. The second part focuses on how plants grow: bud development, the growth of reproductive organs, leaf arrangement, branching patterns, and the accumulation and loss of structures. Aimed at students of botany and horticulture, enthusiastic gardeners, and amateur naturalists, it functions as an illustrated dictionary, a basic course in plant morphology, and an intriguing and enlightening book to dip into.

Resource Strategies of Wild Plants
by Joseph M. Craine

"This book provides an in-depth historical review and novel synthesis of resource strategies in wild plants. Craine identifies distinct strategies associated with high resource supply and limitations of nutrients, light, water, and carbon dioxide. This multiresource approach to plant strategies overcomes inconsistencies in earlier strategy frameworks and is well-grounded in ecological, biogeochemical, and evolutionary mechanisms that have shaped patterns of terrestrial plant diversity. This book will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in the functional diversity of the planet and its likely future changes."--F. Stuart Chapin III, University of Alaska, Fairbanks"Accessible, concise, and clear, this book reviews and analyzes the main conceptual advances in plant ecology. A timely revision of plant strategies, it addresses fundamental questions, defines disciplines, and moves science forward."--Francisco I. Pugnaire, Spanish National Council for Scientific Research"Joseph Craine is one of the few people in the world with the expertise to have written this book, and he has done it with rigor, substance, and style. There is nothing comparable in the ecological literature. Logically developed, well researched, efficient, and engaging, this book should be required reading for anyone with a professional interest in plant ecology."--Matthew P. Ayres, Dartmouth College

The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World
by Michael Pollan

In 1637, one Dutchman paid as much for a single tulip bulb as the going price of a town house in Amsterdam. Three and a half centuries later, Amsterdam is once again the mecca for people who care passionately about one particular plant — thought this time the obsessions revolves around the intoxicating effects of marijuana rather than the visual beauty of the tulip. How could flowers, of all things, become such objects of desire that they can drive men to financial ruin?

In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan argues that the answer lies at the heart of the intimately reciprocal relationship between people and plants. In telling the stories of four familiar plant species that are deeply woven into the fabric of our lives, Pollan illustrates how they evolved to satisfy humankinds's most basic yearnings — and by doing so made themselves indispensable. For, just as we've benefited from these plants, the plants, in the grand co-evolutionary scheme that Pollan evokes so brilliantly, have done well by us. The sweetness of apples, for example, induced the early Americans to spread the species, giving the tree a whole new continent in which to blossom. So who is really domesticating whom?

Weaving fascinating anecdotes and accessible science into gorgeous prose, Pollan takes us on an absorbing journey that will change the way we think about our place in nature.
