Abstract
The main objective of crop physiology as Watson(1968) remarks,is to findhow the morphological charachers and the physiologicl activities of crop interact with the environment to determine yield.Coffee being an extremely valuable cash crop,various workers have tried to add knowledge to accomplish this objective.In the present review however it is not possible to include all aspects of coffee physiology,and herefore references should be made to some past work and reviews (e.g. Medcalf, 1958; Alviim, 1964; Wormer, 1966; Cannell, 1972; Browning, 1974; Nunes, 1976).On the other hand,coffee being a tropical plant and thus grown mostly in the countries of the third world which in many cases lack facilities for advanced physiological work,not much is known about the physiology of coffee and there are still many gaps in our knowledge about many important processes.
