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)
