Photosynthesis. Energy from the Sun 14th International Congress on Photosynthesis
 

Summary: Photosynthesis. Energy from the Sun
14th International Congress on Photosynthesis
Editorial Introduction
Photosynthesis is the natural process of harvesting,
converting, and storing light energy. It is widely
distributed among living organisms. With minor
possible exceptions near hydrothermal vents, deep
in the dark of the ocean floor, all life as we recog-
nise it, including our own, depends absolutely upon
this process.
The first truly international conference on pho-
tosynthesis was held in Freudenstadt in Germany
in 1968 (Govindjee 2005). It was organised by
Helmut Metzner.
By simple arithmetic, the unbroken succession
of thirteen triennial international photosynthesis
conferences, or congresses, stands behind the
fourteenth and most recent, held in Glasgow,
Scotland, U.K. from 22nd
27th
