The fIrst edition of the Science 0/ Photobiology edited by Kendric C. Smith (plenum Press, 1977) was a comprehensive textbook of photobiology, devoting a chapter to each of the subdisciplines of the fIeld. At the end of many of these chapters there were brief descriptions of simple experiments that students could perform to demonstrate the principles discussed. In the succeeding years some photobiologists felt that a more complete publica tion of experiments in photobiology would be a useful teaching tool. Thus, in the 1980s the American Society for Photobiology (ASP) attempted to produce a laboratory manual in photobiology. Cognizant of these efforts, Kendric Smith elected to publish the second edition of The Science o/Photobiology (1989) without experiments; anticipating the comple tion of the ASP laboratory manual. Unfortunately, the initial ASP efforts met with limited success, and several years were to pass before a photobiology laboratory manual became a reality. One of the major stumbling blocks to production of an accurate and reliable laboratory manual was the requirement that the experiments be tested, not just by the author who is familiar with the techniques, but by students who may be quite new to photobiology. How could this be accomplished with limited resources? Many ideas were considered and discarded, before a workable solution was found. The catalyst that enabled the careful screening of all experiments in this book was a NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) devoted entirely to this purpose.

Annual European Symposium on Photomorphogenesis, Volume 27: Photochemistry and Photobiology covers the proceedings of the 1977 Annual European Symposium on Photomorphogenesis, held in Bet Dagan, Israel. This book is divided into 25 chapters and begins with an examination of different forms of phytochrome in extracts of etiolated oat seedlings. The succeeding chapters review the involvement and interaction of membranes, hormones, and the circadian clock. These chapters also look into the effects of light on oscillations of enzyme activity in extracts and the differential effects of calcium on Mougeotia chloroplast movement. These topics are followed by discussions of in vitro transcription and translation of light; the concept of plastid photomorphogenesis; and the photocontrol of plant growth. The final chapters explore the blue light effects on lower and higher plants and the photomorphogenesis in microorganisms, algae, and mosses. This book will be of great value to photochemists, photobiologists, and researchers.

The mosses (Bryophatea, Musci) are a diverse and widely distributed group of land plants. Mosses are attractive experimental plants because they exhibit the traditional attributes of good model systems (Le. ease of growth & maintenance, fast generation time, and amenable genetics) with the added advantage of a haploid gametophyte that allowed developmental mutants to be recovered with relative ease. In addition, mosses with the ability to tolerate extreme environmental conditions offer realistic models for the analysis of environmental stress-tolerance; particularly when compared to tracheophytes such as Arabidopsis thaliana in which these important plant phenotypes are either not clearly expressed or entirely lacking. And, in one of the most exciting developments in Plant Biology, efficient homologous recombination occurs in the moss Physcomitrella patens. The ability to perform efficient homologous recombination (Le. gene knock-outs) in P. patens is at present unique amongst all plants and represents an extremely powerful technique for the functional analysis of many plant genes. Over the past 5 years, a world-wide community of moss researchers has evolved. A highly successful "Moss" conference has been held annually (l998-Mumbai, India; 1999-Carbondale, IL, USA; 2000-Villars, Switzerland; 200l-0kazaki, Japan; 2002-Ambleside, UK; 2003-St. Louis, MO, USA) with "Moss 2004" planned to be held in Frieburg Germany. These conferences have been instrumental in the creation & development of strong collaborative ties, and the free exchange of both ideas and materials.

Diese Einführung in die Methoden enthält konkrete Anleitungen zur Durchführung von Experimenten, wie sie jeder Student im Rahmen seiner Praktika zur Pflanzenphysiologie zu absolvieren hat. Diese Experimente sind in zwei Kategorien eingeteilt: zuerst "Demonstrations-Experimente" als in der Regel einfach auszuführende Versuche zur Veranschaulichung bestimmter physiologischer Sachverhalte. Sie haben vor allem didaktischen Charakter und sind weitgehend deduktiv dargestellt. Im Gegensatz dazu stellt die andere Kategorie "Analytische Experimente" vor, für die eine induktive Darstellungsweise gewählt wurde. Das Thema dieser Versuche ist als "Problem" formuliert, und ihre Durchführung wird im Detail nur für ein "Grundexperiment" dargestellt, welches den prinzipiellen experimentellen Ansatz und die Methodenbeschreibung enthält. Mit diesen Anleitungen ist es dann möglich, die entsprechenden physiologischen oder methodischen Fragestellungen selbständig zu bearbeiten.

Plants are loved by lots of people - in our homes, on our tables as foods, and in hundreds of products we use every day. Plants have many different usages. But how do plants develop from seeds, and how do they grow? This is where plant physiology comes into play. Plant physiology is the study of how different parts of plants function. It includes many aspects of plant life, including nutrition, movement, and growth. Fundamental processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, plant nutrition, plant hormone functions, tropisms, nastic movements, photoperiodism, photomorphogenesis, circadian rhythms, environmental stress physiology, seed germination, dormancy and stomata function and transpiration, both parts of plant water relations, are studied by plant physiologists. Plant physiology includes the study of biological and chemical processes of individual plant cells. Plant cells have a number of features that distinguish them from cells of animals, and which lead to major differences in the way that plant life behaves and responds differently from animal life. This book explores how plant physiology helps us to understand the many functions and behaviors of plants. Methods and Techniques in Plant Physiology is dedicated to physiology, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, genetics, biophysics, and environmental biology of plants. Techniques related to various physiological phenomenon are focus of tremendous interest and importance to plant physiologist, agronomist, horticulturist, ecologist, and biochemists.

Practical Skills in Biology is an indispensable book for undergraduate students in the life sciences. The book provides useful support at all stages of a degree course and underpins any practical course in biology. It is also a valuable resource for teachers of biology in colleges and secondary schools. Laboratory and field studies are essential components of undergraduate training in biology. Practical work must be fully understood and effectively presented, but many students under-perform because they lack basic laboratory skills. This book, now in its fourth edition, continues to provide students with easy-to-use guidance for laboratory and field studies, but in addition it now covers broader transferable skills. As a result the new edition provides guidance and support over the entire range of a typical undergraduate course in biology.

Biophysical Techniques in Photosynthesis

Progress in photosynthesis research is strongly dependent on instrumentation. It is therefore not surpr- ing that the impressive advances that have been made in recent decades are paralleled by equally impressive advances in sensitivity and sophistication of physical equipment and methods. This trend started already shortly after the war, in work by pioneers like Lou Duysens, the late Stacy French, Britton Chance, Horst Witt, George Feher and others, but it really gained momentum in the seventies and especially the eighties when pulsed lasers, pulsed EPR spectrometers and solid-state electronics acquired a more and more prominent role on the scene of scientific research. This book is different from most others because it focuses on the techniques rather than on the scientific questions involved. Its purpose is three-fold, and this purpose is reflected in each chapter: (i) to give the reader sufficient insight in the basic principles of a method to understand its applications (ii) to give information on the practical aspects of the method and (iii) to discuss some of the results obtained in photosynthesis research in order to provide insight in its potentalities. We hope that in this way the reader will obtain sufficient information for a critical assessment of the relevant literature, and, perhaps more important, will gain inspiration to tackle problems in his own field of research. The book is not intended to give a comprehensive review of photosynthesis, but nevertheless offers various views on the exciting developments that are going on.

Since publication of the first edition of Volume I in 1994, the field of fungal biology has developed tremendously, mainly through the advancement of various molecular techniques and international fungal genome projects. To accommodate these developments, the second edition has been completely updated. Six chapters have been revised by former authors, others by newly recruited experts, and also novel subjects, emerged in more recent years, have been added to the book. Leading scientists in the field have compiled comprehensive overviews as well as latest results obtained from cytological, genetic and molecular studies. Topics include: cellular and colony growth of fungi, cellular fusion and incompatibility, senescence and programmed cell death, environmental and physiological signalling in differentiation processes, asexual and sexual reproduction, mitosis and meiosis of various types of fungi. Both parallels and differences become visible between individual fungi as well as between fungal classes.
