Anoxygenic Photosynthetic Bacteria is a comprehensive volume describing all aspects of non-oxygen-evolving photosynthetic bacteria. The 62 chapters are organized into themes of: Taxonomy, physiology and ecology; Molecular structure of pigments and cofactors; Membrane and cell wall structure: Antenna structure and function; Reaction center structure and electron/proton pathways; Cyclic electron transfer; Metabolic processes; Genetics; Regulation of gene expression, and applications. The chapters have all been written by leading experts and present in detail the current understanding of these versatile microorganisms.
The book is intended for use by advanced undergraduate and graduate students and senior researchers in the areas of microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, biophysics and biotechnology.

Review quote

`The editors have done an excellent job to break down the huge package of information into well co-ordinated pieces. ... The technical quality of the presentations, especially the colour plates is excellent and the publication has been very fast ... In conclusion, the book is without any doubt the best which is available on the book market in the field of anoxygenic photosynthetic bacteria. This volume is obligatory in all laboratories working in that field, and even those photosynthesis researchers, who use oxygenic organisms, will profit a lot from the papers in that book.'
