Researchers in plant biophysics are making rapid progress in understanding the essential processes of photosynthesis, energy and resource acquisition, and transport. Although much work has been done with plants, there has not been a comprehensive treatment of their biophysical functions in a
single text. This volume provides a more detailed and up-to-date overview of a number of interrelated aspects of aquatic plants than available elsewhere in the literature. The text should be of interest to researchers, university professors, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students in plant biophysics, biochemistry, physiology, ecology, oceanography, and limnology.
