  • Govindjee
  • Professor Govindjee and his co-editors have done a magnificent work by producing an impressive lively picture of how the knowledge on Photosynthesis progressed during the twentieth century. (springer.com)
  • The book 'Discoveries in Photosynthesis', edited by Govindjee, J. Thomas Beatty, Howard Gest and John F. Allen, is a remarkable Encyclopedia of Research in Photosynthesis, its discoveries, and its difficulties during the last century. (springer.com)
  • Discoveries in Photosynthesis, edited by Govindjee, J.T. Beatty, H. Gest and J.F. Allen, is a splendid compendium of the great leaps forward in the research on photosynthesis, paralleling the advances in technology for the study of the life sciences in general. (springer.com)
  • energy
  • This first session will discuss the fundamental processes in biological solar energy conversion (e.g., natural photosynthesis) and the possibilities to exploit in vivo systems for solar fuel synthesis. (rsc.org)
  • Many systems now claim to exceed natural photosynthesis not only in terms of solar energy conversion efficiency, but also in catalytic rate. (rsc.org)
  • biomass
  • Because photosynthesis is at the heart of plant bioenergetics, fundamental to plant productivity and biomass, and a major factor in global climate, it is widely studied across the many fields it embraces. (springer.com)
  • Chemistry
  • Glasgow scientists Professor Lee Cronin, Gardiner Chair of Chemistry, and Professor Mike Blatt, Regius Professor of Botany, will lead the UK efforts in two of four transatlantic research teams exploring ways to overcome limitations in photosynthesis which could then lead to ways of significantly increasing the yield of important crops for food production or sustainable bioenergy.

  • chemical
  • So it's a nice bit of chemical engineering, but the headline "frog foam photosynthesis" is deeply misleading: the frogs don't photosynthesize, and one of their chemicals is being put to a novel purpose. (slashdot.org)
  • research
  • Three of the research projects will focus on improving a reaction driven by an enzyme called Rubisco, which is a widely recognized bottleneck in the photosynthesis pathway. (enn.com)
  • Conceived of as a way of summarizing the history of research advances in photosynthesis as of millennium 2000, the book evolved into a majestic and encyclopedic saga involving all of the basic sciences. (springer.com)
  • The personal perspectives are delightful, it is truly a "must own" book for its focus on the personal historical context surrounding most of the important breakthroughs in photosynthesis research. (springer.com)
  • In collaboration with Fay Bendall, he made his second great contribution to photosynthesis research with the discovery of the 'Z scheme' of electron transport. (wikipedia.org)
  • Photosynthesis Research. (wikipedia.org)
  • describe
  • The reason PAR is preferred over other lighting metrics such as luminous flux and illuminance is that the latter is based on human perception of brightness, which is strongly green biased and does not accurately describe the quantity of light capable of causing photosynthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • water
  • Modern 'open system' photosynthesis systems remove the CO2 and water vapour by passage over soda lime and Drierite, then add CO2 at a controlled rate to give a stable CO2 concentration. (wikipedia.org)
