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.
