Plant Biomechanics: From Structure to Function at Multiple Scales by Anja Geitmann
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 436 Pages | ISBN : 3319790986 | 26.02 MB
This book provides important insights into the operating principles of plants by highlighting the relationship between structure and function. It describes the quantitative determination of structural and mechanical parameters, such as the material properties of a tissue, in correlation with specific features, such as the ability of the tissue to conduct water or withstand bending forces, which will allow advanced analysis in plant biomechanics. This knowledge enables researchers to understand the developmental changes that occur in plant organs over their life span and under the influence of environmental factors.
