This comprehensive introduction to plant ecology teaches undergraduates the essentials of interactions between plants and their environment. Completely updated and incorporating a stronger approach to conservation, Terrestrial Plant Ecology, Third Edition, retains the clear and readable style that has been one of its hallmarks. The addition of two new authors, who contribute expertise on topics such as vegetation sampling and the conservation of endangered species, results in the most in-depth and current coverage yet of modern plant ecology.
