From the reviews:
"The reviewed book belongs ... to the well-known series `Advances in Photosynthesis and Respiration' ... . The book consists of 19 chapters written by well-known photosynthesis researchers working in countries all over the world. ... The book is supplemented with a good subject index. ... The book brings a basic material for every laboratory dealing with algae or light-harvesting complexes." (Z. Sestak, Photosynthetica, 2006)
"This book, the 14th volume of the series `Advances in photosynthesis and respiration' successfully embraces in 479 pages all the major fields within the wide topic of algal photosynthesis. ... The quality of the figures and indeed the execution in general are of high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending the book to undergraduate students and to researchers in diverse fields of algology, plantphysiology, photosynthesis and evolutionary sciences. It can be used equally well as a study book or as a scientific source book." (K. Szabo, Acta Botanica Hungarica, Vol. 46 (3-4), 2004)
