About this book

Photosynthesis - the capture of light energy by living organisms - is a simple enough concept, but its investigation draws on the resources of disciplines right across the field of science. Using a time framework, this book covers photophysics, photochemistry, electron transport, ATP formation, metabolism and physiology. The increasing time-scales correspond to the concentric arrangement of thylakoids, chloroplasts, cells and tissues. This book should be of interest to advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in biology, biochemistry and microbiology.


Photosynthesis. The organization of photosynthetic structures. Primary photophysics - times from 1fs to 100ps. Electron transfer within reaction-centre complexes - times from 4ps to 0.15ms. Electron transport by diffusible molecules - times from 1ms to 20ms. The production of ATP - times from 1s to 100s. Metabolic processes and physiological adjustments - seconds to hours.
