"It is very useful to students and researchers who want a wide angle view on the photosynthesis research methods[...] Overall, the book provides a valuable guide in finding the most suitable experimental approach for photosynthesis research, and connections to related processes that determine plants productivity." (International Journal of Ecology)
"[...]of great interest to plant physiology and plant ecology teachers as well as for graduate students working in the fields of photosynthesis and plant productivity." (Journal of Experimental Botany)
"[...]one can recommend it to all students and scientists who want to become familiar with studies in ecology, plant physiology, agricultural and horticultural sciences." (Journal of Plant Physiology)
"Although designed as a field and bench manual this work is also a fine textbook on these subjects and will be a bible for new postgraduates in the subject and a much needed inspiration for those needing to design new practical courses [...] here is a book academics can afford to buy and feel happy they have received value for money." (Phytochemistry)
