Photobiology integrates a wide variety of scientific disciplines. As more people become aware of the many ways light interacts with chemical and biological systems, the need for a concise treatment of photobiology has become more critical. Kohen et al. Have written just such a book, intended both as a textbook and as a : $ “The book ‘Photobiology–the Science of Life and Light’ provides an excellent source of information to build upon or refresh one’s background knowledge of the physics of light with respect to its interaction in biological systems. with the coverage of an enormous range of different topics, this book provides a comprehensive and entertaining introduction into the field of photobiology. A final chapter is devoted to teaching experiments and demonstrations in photobiology. This book encompasses topics from a diverse array of traditional disciplines: physics, biochemistry, medicine, zoology, botany, microbiology, etc., and makes different aspects of photobiology accessible to experts in all these areas as well as to the novice. Photobiology: The Science of Life and Light, Second edition, is fully updated and offers eight new chapters for a comprehensive look at photobiology. The chapters cover all areas of photobiology, photochemistry, and relationship between light and biology, each with up-to-date references. The chapter authors (of which seven are new) have very.
The European Society for Photobiology actively promotes this books series as a part of its commitments for expanding the scope of photobiology and attracting the attention of the scientific and medical community to the high potential and value of this branch of science at both an academic, industrial and social level. The book is designed primarily to be used as a text book by graduates and post-graduates. It is, however, also intended to be a resource book for new researchers in plant photobiology. Several introductory chapters are designed as suitable reading for undergraduate courses in integrative and molecular biology, biochemistry and biophysics. Photobiology is the science studying the effects on biological systems of non-ionizing radiation - specifically ultraviolet, visible and infrared radiation, either from sunlight or from artificial sources. This transdisciplinary field encompasses scientific, technological and medical aspects, and impacts the civil society, through dealing with light-driven processes related to, for instance. Photobiology is the branch of science that studies the interactions of living organisms with visible and ultraviolet radiation. This book first presents the theory behind calculations related to research in photobiology and describes how to use R as a tool for carrying out these calculations.
Photobiology: The Science of Life and Light, Second edition, is fully updated and offers eight new chapters for a comprehensive look at photobiology. The chapters cover all areas of photobiology, photochemistry, and relationship between light and biology, each with up-to-date references. The. Photobiology is the study of both the good and the bad effects of light. Studies range from the atomic level to the level of communities of organisms. Photobiologists use all of the tools of science to study the chemical and biological effects of light. Photobiology is an exciting and challenging field of science. BOOKS on PHOTOBIOLOGY. The Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology is an open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes short communications, research articles and reviews covering the whole field of photochemistry and photobiology. The journal publishes the results of fundamental studies on all aspects of chemical phenomena induced by interactions between light and molecules/matter of all kinds; as well as. CiteScore: ℹ CiteScore: CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title. CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g. ) to peer-reviewed documents (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters) published in the same four calendar years, divided by the number of.
