"Photosynthesis is a biological process that is as complex as it is fundamental. It is a field that spans time scales from the cosmic to the femtosecond, and bridges disciplines from biochemistry to geology. In the last ten years major advances in the field and improved research techniques have further deepened the understanding of the process of photosynthesis." "Molecular Mechanisms of Photosynthesis stands as an ideal introduction to this subject. Robert E. Blankenship, a leading authority in photosynthesis research, offers a modern approach to photosynthesis in this accessible and well-illustrated text. The book provides a concise overview of the basic principles of energy storage and the history of the field, then progresses into more advanced topics such as electron transfer pathways, kinetics, genetic mutations, and evolution. Throughout, Blankenship includes an interdisciplinary emphasis that makes this book appealing across fields."--Jacket.
