Significant developments in recent years have led to a deeper understanding of the role and function of carotenoids in photosynthesis. For the first time the biological, biochemical, and chemical aspects of the role of these pigments in photosynthesis are brought together in one comprehensive reference volume. Chapters focus on the photochemistry of carotenoids in light harvesting and photoprotection, the nature and distribution of carotenoids in photosynthetic organisms, their biosynthesis, the herbicidal inhibition of carotenogenesis and the `xanthophyll cycle'. Throughout details are given of the various methodologies used. A detailed appendix provides physical data for the major compounds. Carotenoids in Photosynthesis is an invaluable reference source for all plant scientists.occurrence 2, 17, 26a€“7, 34, 36a€“7, 43a€“51, 58, 74a€“5, 79a€“81, 195-6 photochemical properties energy diagram 362 ... 242 Chirality 5, 439 See also Circular dichroism Chlamydomonas nivalis 198 Chlamydomonas reinhardii 28, 81 Chlorella sp.
