About this Item

Neuware - Photosynthesis: Photobiochemistry and Photobiophysics is the first single-authored book in the Advances in Photosynthesis Series. It provides an overview of the light reactions and electron transfers in both oxygenic and anoxygenic photosynthesis. The scope of the book is characterized by the time frame in which the light reactions and the subsequent electron transfers take place, namely between -12 and =10-3 second. The book is divided into five parts: An Overview; Bacterial Photosynthesis; Photosystem II & Oxygen Evolution; Photosystem I; and Proton Transport and Photophosphorylation. In discussing the structure and function of various protein complexes, we begin with an introductory chapter, followed by chapters on light-harvesting complexes, the primary electron donors and the primary electron acceptors, and finally the secondary electron donors. The discussion on electron acceptors is presented in the order of their discovery to convey a sense of history, in parallel with the advancement in instrumentation of increasing time resolution. The book includes a large number of stereo pictures showing the three-dimensional structure of various photosynthetic proteins, which can be easily viewed with unaided eyes. This book is designed to be used as a textbook in a graduate or upper-division undergraduate course in photosynthesis, photobiology, plant physiology, biochemistry, and biophysics; it is equally suitable as a resource book for students, teachers, and researchers in the areas of molecular and cellular biology, integrative biology, microbiology, and plant biology. 763 pp. Englisch.

Photosynthesis: Photobiochemistry and Photobiophysics is the first single-authored book in the Advances in Photosynthesis Series. It provides an overview of the light reactions and electron transfers in both oxygenic and anoxygenic photosynthesis.

The book is divided into five parts: An Overview; Bacterial Photosynthesis; Photosystem II & Oxygen Evolution; Photosystem I; and Proton Transport and Photophosphorylation.

Review:

`...this book provides an excellent, very detailed and all-embracing review on the primary photoreactions of photosynthesis. This book will be, with no doubt, very useful to students and teachers in photosynthesis, photobiology and plant physiology disciplines. It will also provide a valuable handbook and a basis of reference for scientist and PhD student working on photo-induced electron transfer and will certainly become a "must" on the shelves of the library of the laboratories devoted to this field.'
Plant Science, 161 (2001)
` ...I would highly recommend this book for all scientists who are already involved in this field or research and who aim to.'
Physiologiae Plantarum, 23:3 (2001)
`The uniqueness of the book lies in its in-epth, precise data-based presentations... Bacon Ke's book `Photosynthesis' represents an elegant presentation of the intricate aspects of light reactions to photosynthesis... This book shall adorn the bookshelf of many for years... Dr. Ke deserves the congratulations and admiration of all for his painstaking efforts to write this advanced text.'
Prasanna Mohanty, formerly Professor of Photobioenergetics and Biochemistry, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, and Adjunct Professor, Functional Ecology, Regional Resource Center, Bhubaneswar, Orissa
`This volume is an important source of reference and would greatly benefit libraries. Prof. Ke is to be congratulated on a monumental work of synthesis.'
Annals of Botany, 91 (2003)
