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.
