This book summarizes the advances made in the last decade in the biophysics, biochemistry, and molecular biology of the light-driven plastocyanin:ferredoxin oxidoreductase known as Photosystem I. This reaction center participates along with Photosystem II in harvesting solar energy to supply photosynthetic organisms with stored chemical energy in the form of ATP and stored reducing power in the form of NADPH for processes such as metabolism, growth, and reproduction. This volume is a unique compilation of 40 chapters by leading researchers; it contains information on molecular architecture, protein-pigment interactions, excitation and electron transfer dynamics, protein-cofactor interactions, kinetics of electron transfer and bioassembly of proteins and cofactors. It begins with a series of historical perspectives that provide a solid background to the field, and ends with information on modeling of light-harvesting and electron transfer reactions, and the evolution of the reaction center. Particular attention is paid to spectroscopy, including the theory of the measurement and the interpretation of the data. The book is intended to be a comprehensive and up-to-date source of background information on Photosystem I for seasoned researchers, those who are just entering the field, Ph.D. students, researchers and advanced undergraduates in the fields of biophysics, biochemistry, microbiology, agriculture, and ecology. Industrial scientists, interested in solar energy conversion, will also find the book useful.

From the reviews: "The book is edited by one of the leading experts in the field ... and provides an up-to-date collection of 40 reviews written by 80 established researchers from 13 countries. ... This ensures that the volume is not only a rich source of information for advanced researchers ... but also a valuable introduction for graduate students. ... In conclusion, everybody who works with PSI or plans to do so in the near future should have the book on his or her desk." (Frank Müh, Jan Kern and Athina Zouni, Angewandte Chemie, Vol. 46 (30), 2007) "The volume is divided into 11 sections spanning a total of 40 chapters authored by about 80 researchers. ... This book is a valuable addition to the literature on photosynthesis in general ... . it is a useful volume not only for researchers and Ph D students, but for teachers of biology, bio-chemistry and biophysics. I strongly recommend this book to all universities and research institutions that work on plant biology. Govindjee and Golbeck deserve to be complimented for bringing out such a valuable volume." (Prafullachandra Vishnu Sane, Current Science, Issue 2007 c) "The huge amounts of pages show that all aspects of the photosystems are analysed in detail. ... this one deserves to be on bookshelves of every laboratory interested in photosynthesis research. Those who will buy the electronic version will find references to the source articles." (Z. Sesták, Photosynthetica, Vol. 45 (4), December, 2007)
