This unique resource reviews progress made by scientists researching into how ambient changes in the wavelength, intensity, direction and duration of light environment affect plant growth and development. It explains how combinations of new research with classical photobiology and physiology have made it feasible to interpret intriguing light dependent phenomena such as phototropism, determination of flowering time, shade avoidance etc. at molecular level. Written by over 20 leading experts in the field the book covers major breakthroughs achieved in the last decade. It is generously referenced with more than 2389 bibliographic citations.

From the reviews:
"The book is of the highest scientific standard and can be recommended to all researchers in plant photobiology as well as to graduate and postgraduate students."
(Biologia Plantarum 36:4, 1994)
"The editors present a book that has long been awaited. ... This book on `Photomorphogenesis in Plants and Bacteria' is highly recommended ... . It collects contribution from outstanding scientists in this research field. ... The overall presentation of the book is acceptable and most of the figures are reproduced with sufficient quality." (Wolfgang Gartner, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 165 (3), 2008)
