    ‘Overall, this is a useful book that will be of interest and value to plant population biologists in general and grassland ecologists specifically. Areas where additional research is needed are brought out directly, or alluded to at least, in all the by: Plant ecology is a subdiscipline of ecology which studies the distribution and abundance of plants, the effects of environmental factors upon the abundance of plants, and the interactions among and between plants and other organisms. Examples of these are the distribution of temperate deciduous forests in North America, the effects of drought or flooding upon plant survival, and competition.

    John Harper is an award-winning biologist and a leading figure in plant population biology.

    If population density is high, such factors become increasingly limiting on the success of the population. For example, if individuals are cramped in a small area, the disease may spread faster than it would if population density were low. Factors that are affected by population density are referred to as density-dependent : Laura Klappenbach. This volume is based on a workshop on "Population Biology of. Plants The Interfaces (Genetics, Physiology, Demography, Biogeography)", with a specific profile on "Diversification of Plant Populations in relation to Modes of Reproduction and Dispersal Genetic and Physiological Mechanisms", held in Port-Camargue, France, from May ,
