Leaf Optical Properties reviews the state-of-the-art research into leaf interactions with light, for anyone working in or studying remote sensing, plant physiology, ecology or resource management. Topics covered include leaf traits, their anatomy and structure, biophysics and spectroscopy, radiometry, radiative transfer models, and remote and proximal sensing
