About this book


This book provides an essential summary of an exciting decade of research on relationships between lipids and photosynthesis.  This book, designed both for scientists whose work focuses on photosynthesis and lipids and for graduate students who are developing an interest in the field, brings together extensively cross-referenced and peer-reviewed chapters by 52 prominent researchers, from 9 countries.  The topics covered include the structure, molecular organization and biosynthesis of fatty acids, glycerolipids and non-glycerolipids in plants, mosses, lichens, algae, and cyanobacteria, as well as in chloroplasts and mitochondria.  Several chapters deal with the manipulation of the extent of unsaturation of fatty acids and the effects of such manipulation on photosynthesis and responses to various forms of stress.  The final chapters focus on lipid trafficking, signaling and advanced analytical techniques.  Ten years ago, Paul André Siegenthaler and Norio Murata had edited "Lipids in Photosynthesis: Structure, Function and Genetics," which has been a unique and an authoritative book in the field.  The current new volume belongs, beside its predecessor, on every plant and microbiological researcher's bookcase.
