Nuevo libro: Bryophyte Biology

-

Bryophyte Biology
Cambridge University Press
9780521872256 - Bryophyte Biology - By Bernard Goffinet and A. Jonathan Shaw

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 new 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.

• Up-to-date classifications of mosses, liverworts and hornworts based on the latest molecular results • Coverage of all aspects of bryophyte biology by experts in the field. • The book is rich in references to primary literature, providing an entry point for more intensive research.
