Promotional Information

Aquatic Photosynthesis is an excellent reference text for undergraduate-level courses and is a good text for specialist courses (advanced undergraduate and postgraduate). Everyone who works on aquatic photosynthesis should own this text and most people entering the field at the postgraduate or professional level will purchase it. -- Richard J. Geider, University of Essex It's a great book. It will be very useful for all biologists and oceanographers. -- Govindjee, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Reviews

"Despite the ubiquity and critical importance of this topic to the study of aquatic ecology, there are very few books dedicated primarily to aquatic photosynthesis, and none cover the subject matter with comparable elegance or continuity from the molecule to the ecosystem as does this one, authored by two of the leading researchers in the subject... [I]t is a pleasure to have this important volume back in print after a hiatus of several years. No other text covers the subject as lucidly or completely as this one, and that makes it an extremely valuable pedagogical reference. It will be a welcome addition to any library or personal collection."--Richard C. Zimmerman, Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin "Indeed a magnificent book that will, perhaps, be welcomed as one of the best and the most useful ones for all biologists and oceanographers... No other text covers the subject as lucidly or completely as this one, and that makes it an extremely valuable pedagogical reference. It will be a welcome addition to any library or personal collection."--Richard C. Zimmerman, Current Engineering Practice
