Media reviews

Molecular Mechanisms of Photosynthesis is an engaging story of some of the cutting edges of science over the past three centuries. You will learn how oxygen was discovered, why plants are green and the sky blue, and how a spectrophotometer works. There were Nobel prizes (total seven, I think) for discoveries in almost every chapter of this book, and probably more to come. Away with academic disciplines. Science at this level is exhilarating, and something everyone should have an opportunity to know and to understand. John F Allen, TRENDS in Plant Science, 2002 "[An] excellent text book. I will have no hesitation in recommending it to my students and colleagues alike." James Barber, TRENDS in Biochemical Sciences 2002
