As the most fundamental life process on earth, photosynthesis is the focus of a vast body of research, spanning studies of femtosecond reactions at the molecular level through to field studies requiring a whole season of observation. This is the first advanced-level treatment which covers the broad range of the topic within a single volume, so providing a uniquely comprehensive, authoritative and self-contained sourcebook. Compiled by an international team of experts, the volume opens by considering the cell and molecular biology of chloroplasts, followed by a section which presents the latest information on the biochemistry and physiology of photosynthesis. These chapters are then complemented by coverage of more ecological and applied aspects, such as photosynthesis and global climate change, and crop productivity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... informative, clear and comprehensive ... The book will be an important and useful reference source on plant photosynthesis for students, university teachers and research scientists alike.' Trends in Plant Science
' ... this comprehensive monograph is an excellent source of information and a stimulation for further research'. J. Pospisilova, Biologia Plantarum
' ... a comprehensive, valuable text which can be recommended to a broad readership.' Claus Buschmann, Journal of Plant Physiology
'... a unique and successful attempt in offering an up-to-date and comprehensive 'digest' of all-important topics in photosynthesis. Excellent for advanced students, lecturers, and researchers.' J. Santrucek, Photosynthetica International Journal
"Photosynthesis: A Comprehensive Treatise presents a state-of-the-art picture of the different aspects of photosynthesis. Each topic is discussed by a specialist acknowledged internationally for his or her expertise in the field." Weed Technology
"As an advanced treatise covering a wide spectrum from photosystem organization to global climate change, this book may serve as a refresher for specialists and an introduction for advanced students, and could form the basis of a very thorough course at the upper-division undergraduate or graduate level (but is probably beyond the general reader. Though there have been advanced treatises covering specialized areas, such as chloroplast structure and function, this may be the first that successfully attempts to cover in reasonable depth a very broad range of specialty areas...The authors are recognized leaders in their research areas, representing North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. A well-edited and constructed volume, readable and adequately illustrated." Choice
"Diverse studies of photosynthesis, such as the advances in molecular biology and other techniques that affect our understanding of the evolution and construction of photosynthetic organelles, and how photosynthesis has and will affect the environment and yield of plants, are covered in 'Photosyntheisis: A Comprehensive Treatise.' The 26 chapters, each written by a different author or authors, cover a wide variety of topics, making it well suited as a secondary reference for a course in plant physiology...I was impressed with the variety of viewpoints expressed in this book. The authors present diverse points of view, and the information is current through 1995. Because Photosynthesis: A Comprehensive Treatise contains information not easily found in other texts or scientific journals, it is a valuable reference for horticulturists interested in the physiology of photosynthesis." Martin P.N. Gent, HortScience
