Dear Photosythesizers:

This is to announce that Volume 4 of Advances in Photosynthesis, edited by
D.R.Ort and C.F.Yocum (Assistant Editor: I.F. Heichel): Oxygenic
Photosynthesis:The Light Reactions, has now been released by Kluwer Academic
Publishers. Its ISBN is: 0-7923-3684-4 (paper back); 0-7923-3683-6(hard-cover).
It is available from: Kluwer Academic Publishers, 101 Philip Drive, Norwell,
MA 02061, USA, or PO Box 322, 3300 AH Dordrecht, The Netherlands.I take this
opportunity to thank all the authors for their beautifully written chapters,
both the editors for editing a book that will become a landmark in the area
of photosynthesis, to Iris Heichel for really making it happen, to Larry Orr
for his excellent typesetting and desk-editing, and to Gilles Jonker for his
vision in acquiring this book for the New Series that just started a couple
of years ago.
I remain obliged to all.

Govindjee (Series Editor); Board of Consulting Editors:J Amesz, EM Aro, J
Barber, R Blankenship, N Murata and D Ort
