Light-Harvesting Antennas in Photosynthesis is concerned with the most important process on earth - the harvesting of light energy by photosynthetic organisms. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of all aspects of photosynthetic light-harvesting antennas, from the biophysical mechanisms of light absorption and energy transfer to the structure, biosynthesis and regulation of antenna systems in whole organisms. It sets the great variety of antenna pigment-protein complexes in their evolutionary context and at the same time brings in the latest hi-tech developments. The book is unique in the degree to which it emphasizes the integration of molecular biological, biochemical and biophysical approaches. Overall, a well-organized, understandable, and comprehensive volume. It will be a valuable resource for both graduate students and their professors, and a helpful library reference book for undergraduates.Trends Microbiol 10: 186a192 Cavalier-Smith T(2000) Membrane heredity and early chloroplast evolution.
