By Ulrich Lüttge (auth.), Prof. Dr. Ulrich Lüttge (eds.)

Clusia is the one dicotyledonous tree genus with crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), and at times all editions of CAM might be expressed in a single given species. those targeted beneficial properties in addition to Clusia's severe flexibility have positioned it within the limelight of overseas study. The reviews offered during this quantity embody anatomy, morphology and plant structure, phytogeographical distribution and neighborhood ecology, phylogeny and genetic range, body structure and metabolism, physiological ecology and useful variety, circadian rhythmicity and organic timing. masking all elements of tree biology, this richly illustrated quantity is a useful resource of data for any plant scientist.
