About this book

Photosynthesis and the Environment examines how photosynthesis may be influenced by environmental changes. Structural and functional aspects of the photosynthetic apparatus are examined in the context of responses to environmental stimuli; particular attention being given to the processing of light energy by thylakoids, metabolic regulation, gas exchange and source-sink relations. The roles of developmental and genetic responses in determining photosynthetic performance are also considered. The complexity of the responses to environmental change is demonstrated by detailed analyses of the effects of specific environmental variables (light, temperature, water, CO2, ozone and UV-B) on photosynthetic performance. Where appropriate attention is given to recent developments in the techniques used for studying photosynthetic activities.

The book is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and a wide range of scientists with research interests in environmental effects on photosynthesis and plant productivity.

Reviews

`The editor did a very good job in bringing together numerous topics from multiple authors into a well-arranged and readable volume. The book is an indispensable resource for graduate and PhD students, and for researchers interested in the environmental responses of photosynthesis. It is also an excellent resource for a seminar or advanced course. I recommend this book for all who want to have an up-to-date insight into the ecophysiology of photosynthesis.'
Abstracta Botanica, 21:2 (1997)
`The book contains a broad spectrum of interesting information not only for advanced students but also for scientists who want to have a closer look into photosynthesis research. ... I can really recommend this book as a further up-to-date reference text.'
Journal of Plant Physiology, 151:1
`This outstanding book is recommended to all scientists and advanced students who wish to understand how photosynthetic performance may be influenced by environment.'
Biologia Plantarum, 39:3 (1997)
`... I would recommend this book for libraries or research groups as a good reference on photosytnthetic responses to the environment. I enjoyed reading the book, and would recommend it as an interesting, challenging and thought-provoking read.'
Global Ecology and Biogeography Letters, 7 (1998)
`The book is excellent, with everything going for it.'
Annals of Botany, 81 (1998)
`In short,Photosynthesis and the environment lives up to its title by giving a complete overview of recent advances in photosynthesis from biophysics to ecology.'
Scientia Horticulturae, 75 (1998)
