About this book

Please note, this is a compilation of articles previously published in volumes 36-66 of the book series Progress in Botany.

This is a reader that gives a complete overview of the history of photosynthesic carbon metabolism research up to the very latest state of the art. It is a collection of 16 reviews written over 30 years, and therefore offers the unique opportunity to follow the history of any particular topic as it took place.

"This book is a collection of the previously published 16 reviews by G.J. Kelly and E. Latzko [...] that appeared approximately every 2 years in the series, Progress in Botany. [...] This book is a useful addition for the training of graduate students and post-doctoral associates in research laboratories [...] . Kelly and Latzko have performed a great service for the field in providing their regular reports that are brought together in this book. [...] we recommend this book highly [...] ."
- Archie R. Portis Jr. and Govindjee, Photosynthesis Research, Vol. 90 (3), 2006

"Sixteen review articles describing the carbon side of photosynthesis appeared in volumes 36-66 of the book series entitled Progress in Botany. [...] The reviews reprinted in original form in this Volume had various subtitles characterizing the most important pool of information or anniversary. [...] Every review was accompanied with hundreds of references [...] . it is a welcome source of information for young scientists who-I hope-will not only look at internet, but also read books printed on paper."
- Z. Šesták, Photosynthetica, Vol. 45 (4), December, 2007
