This book presents 96 technically feasible, didactically well selected and described experiments covering nearly all areas of classical and modern plant physiology. The experiments were modified in such a way as to yield a maximum understanding of the basic principles of research into plant physiology and, at the same time, utilizing a minimum of laboratory facilities to reach this aim. The manual keeps a very good balance between these potentially diverging goals and will surely help foster the interest of students for experimental investigations into the function of plants at organismic, cellular and molecular level. The book is specifically designed to meet the requirements of plant physiology students at universities with limited access to sophisticated and expensive laboratory equipment. It should be very useful to college and university teachers, particularly in the developing countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, to whom the book is primarily devoted.
