This volume illuminates the multidisciplinary character of photosynthesis, which spans (bio)physics to agronomy. The book will help provide students with the necessary conceptual outlook for integrating information from the bioenergetic and enzymatic angles, obtained at the molecular l4vel, with the physiology of chloroplasts, leaves and eventually crops. It therefore serves the larger interests of both students and researchers in the areas of agriculture, biotechnology, biochemistry, biophysics, plant physiology, and molecular biology, who are engaged in studying not only the basic aspects of photosynthesis, a major process determining biomass production, but also its relationship to plant productivity. The possibility of using the information in this book to improve biomass and grain yield is something that no one can ignore.
