About this book

Because photosynthesis is at the heart of plant bioenergetics, fundamental to plant productivity and biomass, and a major factor in global climate, it is widely studied across the many fields it embraces. In Photosynthesis Research Protocols, well-known researchers describe in step-by-step detail a broad range of basic and advanced biochemical techniques for isolating, treating, and analyzing the photosynthetic materials and processes. The methods presented are fundamental for research work in agriculture, biochemistry, biotechnology, botany, cell biology, environmental science, forestry, plant genetics, plant molecular biology, photobiology, photophysics, photoprotection, and plant physiology. All protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each one offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Comprehensive and highly practical, Photosynthesis Research Protocols offers both newcomers and experienced researchers an up-to-date collection of readily reproducible techniques essential for photosynthesis research today.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book series is well known as a competent tool for research protocols in all fields of life science. … The book addresses either beginners in photosynthesis research or experienced researchers who want to extend their methodological experience. … I can recommend the book as basic literature for advanced courses in photosynthesis. … In conclusion, this is an excellent book which can be recommended for all laboratories involved in photosynthesis education and research." (Christian Wilhelm, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 162 (6), 2005)
