This book contains selected overviews on several important aspects of photosynthesis and provides both tutorial content and critical insight into the future of photosynthesis research.
Photosynthesis has been a challenging scientific topic since it deals with the process by which a wide range of organisms from bacteria to higher plants convert solar energy to chemical energy for producing food, fibre and fuel out of small molecules of carbon dioxide and water. Deeper and greater understanding of this process holds a promise for a more sustainable Earth with enjoyable pollution-free environment with new technologies for food and cleaner energy for a peaceful and progressive society. Thus, there have been global efforts to mimic the photosynthetic process to meet the needs of the future world.
This book having 19 chapters, gives glimpses of recent progress and future projections on photosynthesis, a process that feeds all living organisms and sustains the globe honours Professor Govindjee, Emeritus Professor of Biophysics Biochemistry & Plant Biology at the University of Illinios, USA. He is an outstanding researcher & teacher of photosynthesis and a global leader for stimulating photosynthesis research throughout the world. This book is useful for researcher/faculty and students as reference/text for courses in plant biology, environmental biology and agriculture.
