Overview

Probing Photosynthesis represents the cutting edge of research on photosynthesis and provides details of experimental approaches that have been adopted to understand it's complex regulatory and adaptive processes. Its twenty seven chapters have been divided into four sections: Evolution, structure and function; Biodiversity metabolism and regulation; Stress and adaptations; and Techniques. Written by leading subject experts from around the world, this comprehensive treatise will interest researchers and students from all disciplines of plant science and provide a useful reference for courses in plant biochemistry, crop physiology, plant biotechnology and environmental botany.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Scientists in the various fields that study photosynthesis, more than usual from India, describe current developments in all aspects of the research. They begin by reviewing milestone discoveries and how they were made. Then they assess the mechanisms of water oxidation, electron flow and energy transduction, carbon assimilation, dynamics of environmental adaptations, and crop productivity. Their accounts blend the techniques of photophysics, photochemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and crop management to offer a text and reference for graduate and undergraduate students and researchers in plant biology.
