  • Photoprotection, Photoinhibition, Gene Regulation, and Environment

    Photoprotection, Photoinhibition, Gene Regulation, and Environment

    Photoprotection, Photoinhibition, Gene Regulation, and Environment examines the processes whereby plants monitor environmental conditions and orchestrate their response to change, an ability paramount to the life of all plants. “Excess light”, absorbed by the light-harvesting systems of photosynthetic organisms, is an integrative indicator of the environment, communicating the presence of intense light and any conditions unfavorable for growth ...

  • Photosynthesis in Algae

    Photosynthesis in Algae

    This book introduces the reader to algal diversity as currently understood and then traces the photosynthetic structures and mechanisms that contribute so much to making the algae unique. Indeed the field is now so large that no one expert can hope to cover it all. The 19 articles are each written by experts in their area; ranging over all the essential aspects and making for a comprehensive coverage of the whole field. Important developments in ...

  • Photosynthesis. Energy from the Sun

    Photosynthesis. Energy from the Sun

    The Proceedings of the 14th International Congress on Photosynthesis is a record of the most recent advances and emerging themes in the discipline. This volume contains over 350 contributions from some 800 participants attending the meeting in Glasgow, UK in July 2007. These range from summary overview presentations from plenary speakers to expanded content of posters presented by students and their supervisors featuring the most recent ...

  • Photosynthetic Rate and Dynamic Environment

    Photosynthetic Rate and Dynamic Environment

    This book deals with photosynthesis and growth of plants/crops from an environmental engineering and environmental physics point of view. A theory to CO2 diffusion or photosynthesis of a single leaf, a plant, plant community and forests is applied and discussed in detail in this book. It would be of interest to horticulturists, agronomists, agricultural engineers, environmental ecologists and crop physiologists.

  • Photosynthesis and Production in a Changing Environment

    Photosynthesis and Production in a Changing Environment

    This book, which has derived from UNEP-sponsored training courses in the subject, contains vital up-to-date information, presented by a leading team of international experts, on all the major parameters of plant growth and the effect upon them of global climate change. It will be an invaluable manual and reference source for students and researchers in plant science, ecology and environmental science.

  • Photosynthesis and the Environment

    Photosynthesis and the Environment

    Photosynthesis and the Environment examines how photosynthesis may be influenced by environmental changes. Structural and functional aspects of the photosynthetic apparatus are examined in the context of responses to environmental stimuli; particular attention being given to the processing of light energy by thylakoids, metabolic regulation, gas exchange and source-sink relations. The roles of developmental and genetic responses in determining ...

  • Photosynthesis: Mechanisms and Effects

    Photosynthesis: Mechanisms and Effects

    Photosynthesis is a process on which virtually all life on Earth depends. To answer the basic questions at all levels of complexity, from molecules to ecosystems, and to establish correlations and interactions between these levels, photosynthesis research - perhaps more than any other discipline in biology - requires a multidisciplinary approach. Congresses probably provide the only forums where progress throughout the whole field can be ...
