Physiology of Crop Yield by Robert K. M. Hay

Book Description

First published in 1989, Physiology of Crop Yield was the first student textbook to digest and assimilate the many advances in crop physiology, within a framework of resource capture and use. Retaining the central core of the first edition, this long-awaited second edition draws on recent developments in areas such as phenology, canopy dynamics and crop modelling, and the concepts of sustainable crop production. A broad perspective is developed, from the gene through the plant and crop to the ecosystem, covering: * Advances in molecular biology relating to crop science * Limitation of crop yield by the supply of water or nitrogen * Global climate change and its impact on crop modelling * Physiological aspects of crop quality * A wider range of species, with emphasis on wheat, maize and soybean This book will be a valuable tool for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of agricultural science, plant science, applied ecology and environmental science. It will be an essential addition to all libraries in universities and relevant research establishments.

Environmental Physiology of Plants by Robert K. M. Hay Environmental Physiology of Plants, Paperback (October 2001)

Features a unified treatment of toxicity and places emphasis on the common features of plant response to ionic, gaseous, and other toxins. This book presents a treatment of issues relating to global change, and talk about the role of fire in plant physiology. It examines molecular approaches which can be harnessed to solve problems in physiology.

Volatile Oil Crops by Robert K. M. Hay Volatile Oil Crops, Hardback (April 1995)

Volatile (essential) oil crops yield a wide range of products - fresh and dried herbs, oils and oil components and various oleoresins. Changing lifestyles in developed countries have led to dramatic increases in demand for these products, particularly over the last decade.
