Photoprotection, Photoinhibition, Gene Regulation, and Environment examines the processes whereby plants monitor environmental conditions and orchestrate their response to change, an ability paramount to the life of all plants. "Excess light", absorbed by the light-harvesting systems of photosynthetic organisms, is an integrative indicator of the environment, communicating the presence of intense light and any conditions unfavorable for growth and photosynthesis. Key plant responses are photoprotection and photoinhibition. In this volume, the dual role of photoprotective responses in the preservation of leaf integrity and in redox signaling networks modulating stress acclimation, growth, and development is addressed. In addition, the still unresolved impact of photoinhibition on plant survival and productivity is discussed. Specific topics include dissipation of excess energy via thermal and other pathways, scavenging of reactive oxygen by antioxidants, proteins key to photoprotection and photoinhibition, peroxidation of lipids, as well as signaling by reactive oxygen, lipid-derived messengers, and other messengers that modulate gene expression. Approaches include biochemical, physiological, genetic, molecular, and field studies, addressing intense visible and ultraviolet light, winter conditions, nutrient deficiency, drought, and salinity.

From the reviews of the first edition: "The contents of the book illustrate a huge diversity among species and environments and raises many unanswered questions ??? . I particularly liked that many issues of photoprotection, photoinhibition and gene expression were discussed both from the cyanobacterial and eucaryotic i.e. plant and algal point of view. ??? I sincerely recommend the book for anyone interested in plant acclimation to the environment, including both senior scientists already familiar with the topics of the book and younger scientists just entering the field."

(Eva-Mari Aro, Photosynthesis Research, August, 2006) "The task of integrating various themes of photoinhibition, photoprotection and gene expression has been well achieved by the editors and the Series editor. This book has volumes of information. a ] I recommend this book to everyone working in the area of photosynthesis, stress biology, molecular biology of organelles and plant molecular biology. Further, I recommend it to all biology libraries of universities and research institutions, especially when bioenergy and global issues are at our doorsteps."
