The last decade has seen rapid and major advances in our understanding of the physiological ecology of plants. This volume reviews some of these advances and new challenges. The chapters cover five broad themes: resource acquisition and utilization; interactions between organisms; responses to global environmental changes; ecosystems; and integration and scaling. This book brings together an unrivalled collection of leading practitioners in the discipline from North America, Europe and Australia and adopts a broad approach, ranging from the molecular to the ecosystem level. It has proven a valuable tool for researchers and advanced students in the discipline.39th Symposium of the British Ecological Society Malcolm C. Press, Julie D. Scholes, Martin G. Barker ... It would be interesting to know whether the pH of the xylem sap of these plants varied significantly with soil drying. ... maintenance of root growth and presumably, therefore, maintenance of water uptake as the soil dries, will be expected to maintain turgor within the plant as water supply is restricted.
