9780691115511: Aquatic Photosynthesis: Second Edition


Aquatic Photosynthesis is a comprehensive guide to understanding the evolution and ecology of photosynthesis in aquatic environments. This second edition, thoroughly revised to bring it up to date, describes how one of the most fundamental metabolic processes evolved and transformed the surface chemistry of the Earth. The book focuses on recent biochemical and biophysical advances and the molecular biological techniques that have made them possible.


In ten chapters that are self-contained but that build upon information presented earlier, the book starts with a reductionist, biophysical description of the photosynthetic reactions. It then moves through biochemical and molecular biological patterns in aquatic photoautotrophs, physiological and ecological principles, and global biogeochemical cycles. The book considers applications to ecology, and refers to historical developments. It can be used as a primary text in a lecture course, or as a supplemental text in a survey course such as biological oceanography, limnology, or biogeochemistry.

From the Inside Flap:

"Aquatic Photosynthesis is an excellent reference text for undergraduate-level courses and is a good text for specialist courses (advanced undergraduate and postgraduate). Everyone who works on aquatic photosynthesis should own this text and most people entering the field at the postgraduate or professional level will purchase it."--Richard J. Geider, University of Essex

"It's a great book. It will be very useful for all biologists and oceanographers."--Govindjee, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
