Media reviews

From the reviews: "This is the first book in the Advances in Photosynthesis and Respiration series (of Govindjee) that comprehensively describes the complete story of plastids that includes their diversity, origin, evolution, interconversion, different physiological functions, communicating systems with other cellular organelles and their responses to various environmental factors. The chapters covering these areas provide the most recent and relevant information." (B. Biswal and U.C.Biswal, India, Current Science, Vol.92(10) May 2007) "The major aim of the editors ! is to go beyond the familiar photosynthetic processes of the plastid to the other extensive, critical processes of this once autonomous organelle. ! would serve as an excellent reference book for advanced graduate classes, and it would serve as a text for advanced graduate classes. Most certainly, it would be an excellent addition to the library of a researcher ! . I strongly recommend that this volume be in all major biology libraries in the world." (A. Scott Holaday, Photosynthesis Research, 2007)
