Dear friends, researchers, students of photosynthesis, and members of 
International Society of Photosynthesis Research:

We (Larry Orr and Govindjee) desire to serve you better by updating 
and enlarging our Web paper on "Photosynthesis and the World Wide 
In 1999, we published the following paper: Orr, L. and Govindjee 
(1999) Photosynthesis and the World Wide Web. In: Photosynthesis: 
Mechanisms and Effects, Garab, G. (Ed.) Kluwer Academic Publishers, 
Dordrecht, Vol. V, pp. 4387-4392
This paper was prepared to help everyone find good stuff on World 
Wide Web as related to teaching and research in photosynthesis. It 
was presented by Govindjee at the 1998 International Congress of 
Photosynthesis Research held in Budapest, Hungary. In addition, both 
of us have placed this article on the web pages (see a review**) of 
Arizona State University and of University of Illinois. The URLs are:
We are planning to revise, expand and update this paper and add a 
page where you can find URLs of all the important sites. We plan to 
do this work during the months of June,July August. We encourage you 
to look at our  current web pages 
(http://www-new.life.uiuc.edu/govindjee AND, 
http://www.photoscience.la.asu.edu/photosyn) and the article itself 
(see URLs given above). We request you to then send both of us what 
you think should be added and where it should be added in our 
article. We hope to receive your input by July 15, 2000. Please send 
your E-mails to both of us (gov at uiuc.edu; and Larry.Orr at asu.edu ).
Thank you very much for your help. Everyone will benefit from your 

Govindjee (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

**Review of our site:
Jenni Laidman (1999) writes, on page 5, in "Chemistry" (quarterly 
newspaper for American Chemical Society (ACS) members and science 
students focussing on the science and the people in 
chemistry):"Photosynthesis and the WorldWideWeb" 
"Just about everything you need to know about the laboratories of 
chemists, physicists, and biologists working to determine how plants 
convert light into energy has been gathered on this page. Created by 
two of the leaders in the field of photosynthesis, the uni-named 
Govindjee, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and 
Larry Orr, of the Center for the Study of Early Events of 
Photosynthesis at Arizona State University, this web essay with links 
can be as much of a primer to the wonders of photosynthesis as it is 
a resource to researchers. Organized into sections for group research 
sites, individual sites, educational sites, books and journal, and 
the grab bag "other", it is hard to find a photosynthesis site they 
have missed. While most comprehensive lists of this kind are little 
more than hypertext labels, this site has the additional benefit of 
providing brief descriptions of what the web surfers will find" ****

****The ACS web site gives a PDF version of the above note. It is at: 
and we think the chemfa99 part of the address is what would be used 
to reference the newspaper.
