The book could be recommended for advanced students and specialists in plant physiology, biology, agriculture and related disciplines. - Acta Physiological Plantarium; Overall, the changes that the authors have made in this new edition of Stomata mark the book's successful transition from being a handbook of stomatal research to an essential textbook of stomatal physiology. I have no hesitation in recommending it, and anticipate that in future years it will become a standard text for scholars of both plant and stomatal physiology - Trends in Plant Science; Reviews of the first edition:; This paperback is, in general, well written and easy to read, especially an as introductory text for students ... A service to plant physiology has been well performed. This reviewer commends this little book as being a `window upon the soul' of stomata ... - Journal of Experimental Botany; [Willmer] gives a highly readable, excellently illustrated account of the distribution, anatomy, structure and development of guard cells ... I know of no other review of the structural aspects of this range and elegance - Times Higher Educational Supplement; Dr Willmer has produced a neat, crisply written monograph which will serve up to first degree level in all plant sciences for a good while to come - The Biologist
