About this book

This book provides an essential summary of an exciting decade of research on relationships between lipids and photosynthesis.  This book, designed both for scientists whose work focuses on photosynthesis and lipids and for graduate students who are developing an interest in the field, brings together extensively cross-referenced and peer-reviewed chapters by 52 prominent researchers, from 9 countries.  The topics covered include the structure, molecular organization and biosynthesis of fatty acids, glycerolipids and non-glycerolipids in plants, mosses, lichens, algae, and cyanobacteria, as well as in chloroplasts and mitochondria.  Several chapters deal with the manipulation of the extent of unsaturation of fatty acids and the effects of such manipulation on photosynthesis and responses to various forms of stress.  The final chapters focus on lipid trafficking, signaling and advanced analytical techniques.  Ten years ago, Paul André Siegenthaler and Norio Murata had edited "Lipids in Photosynthesis: Structure, Function and Genetics," which has been a unique and an authoritative book in the field.  The current new volume belongs, beside its predecessor, on every plant and microbiological researcher's bookcase.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This volume of AIPH is useful in that it addresses a wide spectrum of readers as well as the researchers in the field, just as volume 6 did. It would be an attractive addition to the graduate student and research scholar’s desks. … this book is definitely very timely and much needed for plant scientists, microbiologists and agricultural scientists. … We recommend this book to all university and research libraries around the world. It is a value added book of the AIPH series.” (Prasanna Mohanty and Jogadhenu Syamsundar Prakash, Current Science, Vol. 99 (8), April, 2010)

“Lipids in photosynthesis is essential reading in a currently fast-changing topic. … it does provide an interesting and useful overview to most of the lipid pathways. The detail of each chapter, sometimes usefully placed in a historical context, is outstanding and very well referenced to the original literature. This detailed referencing, as well as the well-edited style of the book, will make this not only of technical importance but also a useful and authoritative text book on the subject for advanced students and academics.” (Matthew P. Davey and Alison G. Smith, Annals of Botany, Vol. 111 (3), March, 2013)
