A clear, concise and vivid account of the process of photosynthesis is presented in this enlarged and fully revised sixth edition. The attractive presentation of this book, including the frequent use of line illustrations and color plates, leads the reader into a fascinating introduction to this sometimes complex topic. The details of photosynthetic processes at the macro and molecular level are discussed based on the results of biochemical, biophysical, and genetic studies. The role of photosynthesis in food production and in the global environment are also highlighted. To aid students in their practical work, a set of simple experiments are described and explained. A comprehensive further reading list is included. Although aimed primarily at undergraduate students in all fields of biological sciences, Photosynthesis will also appeal to the advanced school biology student and to all teachers in biological disciplines.
