Advances in Photosynthesis and Respiration provides an up-to-date account of research on all aspects of photosynthesis, the most fundamental life process on earth. Photosynthesis is an area that requires, for its understanding, a multidisciplinary (biochemical, biophysical, molecular biological, and physiological ) approach. Its content spans from physics to agronomy, form femtosecond reactions to those that require an entire season, from photophysics of reaction centers to the physiology of the whole plant, and from X-ray crystallography to field measurement. The aim of this series of publications is to present to beginning researchers, advanced graduate students, and even specialists, a comprehensive current picture of the advances in the various aspects of photosynthesis research. Each volume focuses on a specific area in depth.
