Canopy Monitoring Books

  • Physiology and Modeling Kernel Set in Maize

    Kernel number per plant is the yield component primarily responsible for variation in maize grain yield across environments. The authors highlight recent discoveries regarding the roles of carbohydrate, nitrogen, and phyto-hormone metabolism in controlling kernel formation. It also establishes new and fundamental relationships between canopy ...

  • Canopy Arthropods

    As forests are cut down, altered and fragmented, the communities of organisms associated with them are also affected. Predictions of global species extinction rates based on forest loss range 1% to 10% each decade. Because arthropods comprise the largest component of animal species richness, it is inevitable that many arthropod species will ...

  • Tropical Forest Canopies: Ecology and Management

    Almost half of all life on earth may exist in the world's forest canopies. They may also play a vital role in maintaining the planet's climate, yet they remain largely unexplored owing to difficulties of access. They are renowned for their great diversity and role in forest functioning, yet there are still great gaps in the understanding of ...

  • Microwave Radiometry of Vegetation Canopies

    Research into microwave radiation from the Earth’s surface in the presence of vegetation canopies, as well as the development of algorithms for retrieval of soil and vegetation parameters from microwave radiometric measurements, have been actively conducted for the last thirty years by many scientific groups and organizations all over the world. ...

  • Pollination Ecology and the Rain Forest

    The groundbreaking canopy-access and rain forest research at Lambir Hills National Park in Sarawak, Malaysia, has contributed an immense body of knowledge. Its major studies over more than a decade are synthesized here for the first time. The focus of this unique volume is on plant-animal interactions and some of the foundations that create and ...

  • Functional-Structural Plant Modelling in Crop Production

    Functional-structural plant models (FSPMs) describe in quantitative terms the development over time of the three-dimensional (3D) structure of plants as governed by physiological processes and affected by environmental factors. FSPMs are particularly suited to analyse problems in which the spatial structure of the plant or its canopy is an ...
