Botanists who want to gain a strong foundation in fundamental concepts of plant physiology consistently rely on Hopkins. The book provides them with accurate, modern, and streamlined content. The fourth edition has been updated to include even more modern applications and color within key images and illustrations to make the material easier to understand. A new chapter is also included that explains how to study plant physiology and a new glossary helps reinforce concepts. Botanists will discover how the concepts are supported by evidence from physiological, biochemical, biophysical, and genomic experiments.
