About this book

This unique resource reviews progress made by scientists researching the ambient changes in the wavelength, intensity, direction and duration of light and how it affects plant growth and development.

From the reviews:"The book is of the highest scientific standard and can be recommended to all researchers in plant photobiology as well as to graduate and postgraduate students."(Biologia Plantarum 36:4, 1994) "The editors present a book that has long been awaited. ! This book on 'Photomorphogenesis in Plants and Bacteria' is highly recommended ! . It collects contribution from outstanding scientists in this research field. ! The overall presentation of the book is acceptable and most of the figures are reproduced with sufficient quality." (Wolfgang Gartner, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 165 (3), 2008)
