Photosynthesis is a complex phenomenon, involving both physical and biochemical mechanisms. This book sets out the two major phases in the process - luminous and metabolic. A glimpse of exchanges between plants and atmosphere also helps in understanding the role played by environmental factors in photosynthesis. This new edition takes stock of the latest scientific advances in this area.
