Dear Colleagues:

A comprehensive book on "Photosynthesis", edited by me has been released
by Cambridge University Press.  The details are described in the
attached html file.

I would be very glad to hear your comments and criticisms.

Thank you in advance,

<H3>A Comprehensive Treatise</H3>
Raghavendra, A.S. (ed.)
As the most fundamental life process on earth, photosynthesis is the focus=
 of a
vast body of research, spanning studies of femtosecond reactions at the
molecular level through to field studies requiring a whole season of
observation. This is the first advanced-level treatment to cover the broad
of the topic within a single volume, providing a uniquely comprehensive,
authoritative and self-contained sourcebook. Written by an international
team of
experts, the volume opens by considering the cell and molecular biology of
chloroplasts, followed by a section that presents the latest information on =
biochemistry and physiology of photosynthesis. These chapters are then
complemented by coverage of more ecological and applied aspects, such as
photosynthesis and global climate change, and crop productivity.
