Measuring the Water Status of Plants and Soils

Measuring the Water Status of Plants and Soils Lowest new price: $48.34
Lowest used price: $25.04
List price: $62.95
Author: John S. Boyer

Plants use large amounts of water in their growth, contributing to important consequences for agriculture and the distribution of plant communities. This book is a laboratory manual, and serves as a companion to the textbook, Water Relations of Plants and Soils, by Kramer and Boyer (1995). Much of our knowledge of plant and soil-water relations comes from thoughtful and careful measurements of the water status of the plant and its surroundings. This book emphasizes thermodynamic methods that can be reproduced at any time or place, indicating the energy used for water transport. The manual begins with a brief review of the relevant thermodynamics, followed by a description of principles and methods used in measuring chemical potential and its components, as well as the precautions necessary to insure success. The book also provides an explanation of the uses of the pressure chamber, thermocouple psychrometer, and pressure probes, as well as selected examples of experiments and references for further study.

Key Features
* Explains laboratory procedures for most-used water status research methods
* Introduces underlying thermodynamic principles
* Compares methods; points to possible conclusions
* Provides example experiments for immediate application

What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses

What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses Lowest new price: $8.40
Lowest used price: $3.00
List price: $14.00
Author: Daniel Chamovitz
Brand: Scientific American

"Enough absorbing science to concede that plants continue to inspire and amaze us." ―The Wall Street Journal

How does a Venus flytrap know when to snap shut? Can it feel an insect's tiny, spindly legs? And how do cherry blossoms know when to bloom? Can they remember the weather?
For centuries we have marveled at plant diversity and form―from Charles Darwin's early fascination with stems to Seymour Krelborn's distorted doting in Little Shop of Horrors. But now, in What a Plant Knows, the renowned biologist Daniel Chamovitz presents an intriguing and scrupulous look at how plants themselves experience the world―from the colors they see to the schedules they keep. Highlighting the latest research in genetics and more, he takes us into the inner lives of plants and draws parallels with the human senses to reveal that we have much more in common with sunflowers and oak trees than we may realize. Chamovitz shows how plants know up from down, how they know when a neighbor has been infested by a group of hungry beetles, and whether they appreciate the Led Zeppelin you've been playing for them or if they're more partial to the melodic riffs of Bach. Covering touch, sound, smell, sight, and even memory, Chamovitz encourages us to consider whether plants might even be aware.
A rare inside look at what life is really like for the grass we walk on, the flowers we sniff, and the trees we climb, What a Plant Knows offers us a greater understanding of botany and science and our place in nature.

Martius: The Book of Palms

Martius: The Book of Palms Lowest new price: $12.07
Lowest used price: $10.47
List price: $20.00
Author: H. Walter Lack
Brand: Lack H Walter

Trees of paradise: Exquisite illustrations of the tropical palm
 
On December 15, 1868, Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius (1794–1868), Professor of Botany at the University of Munich and director of the Royal Botanic Garden, was carried to his grave in a coffin covered with fresh palm leaves. The fronds were a reference to his groundbreaking Natural History of Palms: a work in three volumes, published between 1823–1853.

This encyclopedic treasury of 240 exquisite chromolithographic illustrations was based on Martius’s expeditions through Brazil and Peru. From 1817 to 1820, he traveled over 2,250 km (1,400 miles) through the Amazon basin to investigate natural history and native tribes with zoologist Johann Baptist von Spix.

The result was an unrivaled catalog of all known genera of the palm family, outlining the modern classification of palms, describing all the palms of Brazil, and producing the first maps of palm biogeography. Martius’s folio is unusual in its inclusion of cross-sectioned diagrams, conveying the architecture of these mighty trees, which central Europeans would have found hard to imagine accurately. Equally remarkable are the color landscapes showing various palms—often standing alone in simple and elegant beauty.
