Photosynthesis is one of the most active areas of plant science research. Advances in molecular biology technology have profoundly affected the work in this area and have opened up the possibility of manipulating the genes involved in photosynthesis. The field is expanding, and this bookprovides a compilation of authoritative reviews covering a variety of important issues.
B Andersson and H. Salter are both at the University of Stockholm.

Editorial Reviews

`'This well-produced volume brings together aspects of research from the prokaryote, algal and higher plant fields to provide a valuable introduction for those new to this area of research. Graduate students should benefit enormously from reading a volume of this type to gain a widerperspective of their field; the authoritative and informed reviews give a sound historical perspective as well as looking forward to the important questions remaining to be addressed...this volume should prove a valuable addition not only to institutional libraries but also, by virtue of itseconomical pricing, onto students' bookshelves.''Julie Lloyd, SGM Quarterly, August, 1998.
