Light Sensing in Plants
Edited by Wada, M.; Shimazaki, K.; Iino, M.
Plants utilize light not only for photosynthesis but also as environmental signals.
They are capable of perceiving wavelength, intensity, direction, duration, and other attributes
of light to perform appropriate physiological and developmental changes. This volume presents
overviews of and the latest findings in many of the interconnected aspects of plant photomorphogenesis,
including photoreceptors (phytochromes, cryptochromes, and phototropins), signal transduction, photoperiodism,
and circadian rhythms, in 42 chapters. Also included, is a prologue by Prof. Masaki Furuya that gives an
overview of the historical background. With contributions from preeminent researchers in specific subjects
from around the world, this book will be a valuable source for a range of scientists from undergraduate to
