About this book

“Photosynthesis: Plastid Biology, Energy Conversion and Carbon Assimilation” was conceived as a comprehensive treatment touching on most of the processes important for photosynthesis. Most of the chapters provide a broad coverage that, it is hoped, will be accessible to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers looking to broaden their knowledge of photosynthesis. For biologists, biochemists, and biophysicists, this volume will provide quick background understanding for the breadth of issues in photosynthesis that are important in research and instructional settings. This volume will be of interest to advanced undergraduates in plant biology, and plant biochemistry and to graduate students and instructors wanting a single reference volume on the latest understanding of the critical components of photosynthesis.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is an excellent treatise that covers fundamental aspects of the photosynthetic processes … . Diagrams are clear, with some use of colour, and the text is well laid out. Each chapter ends with a useful bibliography to enable further investigation of primary sources. The book will be a valuable resource for advanced students, teachers and researchers of photosynthesis.” (Matthew Paul, Annals of Botany, Vol. 111 (2), February, 2013)
