About this book

This work details a novel approach to dynamic, as opposed to steady-state, analysis of leaf photosynthesis by integrating fast responses to CO2:O2 exchange with optical techniques for fluorescence, light scattering and absorbance measurements. The authors outline state-of-the-art approaches to the next generation of photosynthetic research. This book should serve as a guide to contemporary techniques which are suited to the "beginning researcher", the graduate student or post-doctoral fellow, as well as the established researcher who might wish to enter a new field.


Conceptual Background; Rapid-Response Gas Exchange Measurement Systems for the Investigation of the Kinetics of Leaf Photosynthesis; Kinetic Analysis of Leaf Carbon Metabolism in Steady-State C3 Photosynthesis; Investigations of Transient Processes in C3 Leaf Photosynthesis; Investigations of Proton Concentration and Transport in Leaves by Gas Exchange Methods; Probing PSII In Vivo Using Rapid-Response Gas Exchange and Chlorophyll Fluorescence; Probing PSI In Vivo Using Rapid-Response Gas Exchange and Absorbance Around 800nm.
