About this book

Written by prominent specialists in the field, Biosphycial Techniques in Photosynthesis provides, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of the various techniques that have proved to be of great importance in studying the mechanism of both oxygenic and anoxygenic photosynthesis. Each chapter discusses the basic concepts of a technique, practical applications and some of the scientific results. The first section concerns optical techniques, the second magnetic resonance, whereas the third is mainly devoted to various techniques that provide information on the structure of the photosynthetic apparatus, such as X-ray diffraction, X-ray absorption and electron microscopy.
