The authors present a new edition of their highly successful introductory textbook. The book has been enlarged and fully revised. Through clear and concise text, attractive presentation and the use of beautiful colour plates, the biology student is drawn into this fascinating introduction to the photosynthetic process. The authors discuss photosynthesis at both a macro and molecular level, placing new ideas in the context of past, present and future research. The role of photosynthesis as a source of food and fuel is highlighted. The student is also encouraged to think practically with a useful chapter on simple laboratory experiments. The book will appeal to students and teachers of biology from those doing A-levels to undergraduate degrees.

The process of the conversion of sunlight into food by plants (photosynthesis) is fundamental to all life on this planet. All students of biology need to understand this process in detail. This book treats photosynthesis in a simple methodical manner and explains complex concepts in an interesting and user-friendly way. It helps the student to think practically about the subjectand launches the reader towards the next stage in their understanding of plant biology.Review:
"I think I have every edition of this classic since Hall and Rao wrote the first one in 1972. I have stolen many lectures from it and have recommended it to legions of students. This is a book aimed at students with some knowledge of biology and chemistry, and it is an extremely good source for a graduate student just beginning work in photosynthesis....What is impressive is the amount of information that has been packed into this slim volume. A bravura performance." Harvard Lyman, Quarterly Review of Biology
