    A monumental work that is an encyclopedic compendium, May 29, 1998

    This book is an invaluable addition to the available literature. Never before has so much useful information about the physiology and biology of greenhouse plants and their growth been assembled in one book. Hanan has combed the literature, inclucing very recent developments, with a fine-tooth comb. The over 1700 reference citations alone are worth the price of the book.This is the reference book for those who want to understand the whys and wherefores of plant growth under greenhouse conditions, who recognize the complexities of the factors at work, and are willing to make the effort to make use of the scientific information that is available. If it’s available, it’s in this book–clearly and concisely presented,with many graphs and illustrations. In addition, it contains much useful information about sensors and controls for climate control and promotion of growth in greenhouse environments.

    The author Dr, Joe J. Hanan, Professor Emeritus of Colorado State Univeersity, is the recipient of the Society of American Florists’ (SAF) 2000 (Millenium) Alex Laurie Award for Research and Education. The Alex Laurie Award is presented annually to an individual who has made broad-scope, long-lasting contributions to the floriculture industry through research or education. The award is named for Alex Laurie, a professor at The Ohio State University, who pioneered work in many areas of floriculture.

    “Joe is one of the most precise floricultural researchers I have known” said Dr. A.A. De Hertogh, Chairman of the SAF’s Research Committee. “That excellence is reflected in his latest book, Greenhouses, Advanced Technology for Protected Horticulture, which was published in 1998, nine years after his official retirement.”

    It a great book to have in only one book all the knowledge, nevertheless in some parts is so technical and arguments are confused.
