Samenvatting

Bryophyte Biology provides an extensive overview of the hornworts, liverworts, and mosses; diverse groups of land plants that occupy a great variety of habitats throughout the world. This edition covers essential aspects of bryophyte biology, from morphology, physiological ecology and conservation, to speciation, and genomics. Revised classifications incorporate contributions from recent phylogenetic studies. Six new chapters complement fully updated chapters from the original book to provide a completely up-to-date resource. New chapters focus on the contributions of Physcomitrella to plant genomic research, population ecology of bryophytes, mechanisms of drought tolerance, a phylogenomic perspective on land plant evolution, and problems and progress of bryophyte speciation and conservation. Written by leaders in the field, this book offers an authoritative treatment of bryophyte biology, with rich citation of the current literature, suitable for advanced students and researchers.

Recensie(s)

'I strongly recommend this bryophyte book to biology students and botanists, and to anyone interested in bryophytes.' Journal of Plant Physiology '... a true gem of a book ...What this book does it to take the reader to the very limits of what is known and provides tantalising glimpses of what needs to be done next. ... Every chapter has an extensive bibliography citing the primary literature which is of enormous importance to the busy researcher.' Journal of Biological Education This volume is a valuable resource for advanced readers focusing on the overall biology of bryophytes. S.L. Timme, Choice Because the second edition represents a major revision, rather than merely an update, of the first edition, anyone who has the first edition will want the second edition as well. Considering both its breadth and its depth, it is an excellent choice for a graduate-level text book in bryology. As the most current work on bryophytes, Bryophyte Biologywill be an important addition to the botanical section of any personal of institutional library. It will be particularly useful to anyone teaching general botany, or even general biology, courses. Robynn Shannon, Plant Science Bulletin
