Probing Photosynthesis represents the cutting edge of research on photosynthesis and provides details of experimental approaches that have been adopted to understand it's complex regulatory and adaptive processes. Its twenty seven chapters have been divided into four sections: Evolution, structure and function; Biodiversity metabolism and regulatio
