"Aquatic Photosynthesis" is a comprehensive guide to
understanding the evolution and ecology of photosynthesis in
aquatic environments. This second edition, thoroughly revised to
bring it up to date, describes how one of the most fundamental
metabolic processes evolved and transformed the surface chemistry
of the Earth. The book focuses on recent biochemical and
biophysical advances and the molecular biological techniques that
have made them possible.
In ten chapters that are self-contained but that build upon
information presented earlier, the book starts with a reductionist,
biophysical description of the photosynthetic reactions. It then
moves through biochemical and molecular biological patterns in
aquatic photoautotrophs, physiological and ecological principles,
and global biogeochemical cycles. The book considers applications
to ecology, and refers to historical developments. It can be used
as a primary text in a lecture course, or as a supplemental text in
a survey course such as biological oceanography, limnology, or
