Editorial Reviews

Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin
Despite the ubiquity and critical importance of this topic to the study of aquatic ecology, there are very few books dedicated primarily to aquatic photosynthesis, and none cover the subject matter with comparable elegance or continuity from the molecule to the ecosystem as does this one, authored by two of the leading researchers in the subject.... [I]t is a pleasure to have this important volume back in print after a hiatus of several years. No other text covers the subject as lucidly or completely as this one, and that makes it an extremely valuable pedagogical reference. It will be a welcome addition to any library or personal collection.
— Richard C. Zimmerman
Booknews
A textbook which focuses on the fundamental concepts of the discipline, especially biochemical and biophysical mechanisms, rather than on the latest discoveries. Arrangement is in ten chapters which address topics such as light absorption and energy transfer in the photosynthetic apparatus, carbon acquisition and assimilation, and making cells. Intended for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate students with a general scientific background. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Indeed a magnificent book that will, perhaps, be welcomed as one of the best and the most useful ones for all biologists and oceanographers. . . .
