About this book

Compiled by an international team of experts, the volume opens by considering the cell and molecular biology of chloroplasts, followed by a section which presents the latest information on the biochemistry and physiology of photosynthesis. These chapters are then complemented by coverage of more ecological and applied aspects, such as photosynthesis and global climate change, and crop productivity.
