Adjustment of photosynthetic processes of plants and cells to the light environment

Edited by Tom Sharkey in January 2007

Plants require light for photosynthesis, but light in excess of what can be used by photosynthesis must be dissipated without damage. This collection of papers describes how plants and algae optimize light usage while minimizing damage.
