Summary Dealing with plant electrophysiology, this book starts with an introduction to plant electrophysiology, followed by two parts. The first one deals with methods in plant electrophysiology, including measuring membrane potentials and ion fluxes, and electrochemical sensors. The second part covers experimental results and their interpretation
