I'm a physicist by training am looking to learn more about the biophysics of plants.

Can you give me your recommendation of good resources on plant biophysics? Books are preferred.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • $\begingroup$ Plant physiology by Salisbury and Ross, would give you a very good beginning. $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Sep 1 '16 at 18:57
  • $\begingroup$ Though some very old (and perhaps forgotten) works; here are 2 volumes of a book by a pioneer of biophysics, J. C. Bose. Life movements in plants: 1. gutenberg.org/files/48280/48280-h/48280-h.htm 2. gutenberg.org/files/40050/40050-h/40050-h.htm $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Sep 1 '16 at 19:02
  • $\begingroup$ @Remi.b This question should be kept open like many-other book-recommendation question. $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Sep 1 '16 at 19:08
