About this book

Series of review articles which focus primarily, but not exclusively, on microorganisms. It considers how organisms perceive and respond to light, how the clocks which are present in all organisms work, both at a molecular level and in the wider biological context, and how light is used for resetting the biological clock.

'! this book is probably of vital importance only to those working in the field. However, the casual reader will find a wealth of interesting 'stories', backed up by persuasive molecular detail obtained from a variety of microbes ! Finally, the book provides fascinating examples of the unity that underlies biological diversity, and as such should appeal to most biologists. Excellent light reading!' Hilary MacQueen, BDSB Newsletter
