About this book

This text deals with the effects of light and other forms of radiant energy on living organisms. Photobiological techniques are used to study a number of light-dependent biochemical processes, such as photosynthesis, bioluminescence, vision, and the influence of light upon hydrocarbons that leads to air pollution.
