Harnessing the sun's energy via photosynthesis is at the core of sustainable production of food, fuel, and materials by plants, algae, and cyanobacteria. Photosynthesis depends on photoprotection against intense sunlight, starting with the safe removal of excess excitation energy from the light-harvesting system, which can be quickly and non-destructively assessed via non-photochemical quenching of chlorophyll fluorescence (NPQ). By placing NPQ into the context of whole-organism function, this book aims to contribute towards identification of plant and algal lines with superior stress resistance and productivity. By addressing agreements and open questions concerning photoprotection's molecular mechanisms, this book contributes towards development of artificial photosynthetic systems. A comprehensive picture -from single molecules to organisms in ecosystems, and from leading expert's views to practical information for non-specialists on NPQ measurement and terminology - is presented.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The editors are to be complimented now for compiling such a comprehensive collection of wisdom on energy dissipation in photosynthetic organisms. ... the library of any institution committed to teaching frontline plant biology provide access to this book for graduate students, postdocs, and research leaders. Moreover, it is indispensible for any laboratory engaged in next generation research in photosynthesis ... ." (Barry Osmond, Photosynthesis Research, Vol. 24, 2015)
