Defensive Plant Coloration : Anti-Herbivory Plant Coloration and Morphology

£100.50

Publication due Dec. 2016

This is the first and only book focusing on defensive plant coloration (aposematism, camouflage, mimicry and other types of defensive visual signalling and deception demonstrated by 170 colour photos). It illuminates many overlooked aspects of plant evolution and ecology. This book aims to provoke and stimulate students and scientists studying plant-animal interactions to consider visual plant defences against herbivores, especially in the development of greener agricultural practices. This book outlines the basics of visual plant defences against herbivorous animals in order to establish this neglected area of plant evolution and ecology as an ordered branch of plant biology
