<P><FONT SIZE=2>&nbsp;I am pleased to announce the publication in 
December 2002 of :</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Photosynthetic Nitrogen Assimilation and Associated 
Carbon and Respiratory</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Metabolism, Volume 12 in Advances in Photosynthesis 
and Respiration, 304</FONT>


<P><FONT SIZE=2>Edited by Christine H. Foyer, UK, and, Graham Noctor, 

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Special discounts are available for members of 
International Society of</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Photosynthesis Research (ISPR): <A 

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>regular price is US $135, hardcopy only).</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Address for Foyer and Noctor book at the Kluwer Site 
is ;</FONT>


<P><FONT SIZE=2>I include below information about the book and the 
Table of Contents along</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>with the names of ALL authors!</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Govindjee</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Series Editor, Advances in Photosynthesis and 


<P><FONT SIZE=2>This book focuses on the very latest developments in 
our understanding of</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>how plants use light energy and fixed carbon to 
assimilate nitrate and</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>ammonium into the organic compounds required for 
growth. From the</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>partitioning of organic nitrogen within the 
photosynthetic apparatus,</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>through the primary&nbsp; processes of reduction of 
nitrate and nitrite and the</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>assimilation of ammonium and its cycling in 
photorespiration, the complex</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>interactions inherent in the cross talk between 
carbon and nitrogen</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>assimilation are considered and exciting new 
developments such as nitric</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>oxide production evaluated.Attention is paid 
throughout to the close</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>coordination of photosynthetic and respiratory 
processes in nitrogen</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>assimilation. Emerging concepts of the 
interdependence of chloroplasts and</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>mitochondria are described, and essential 
communication, transport and</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>signaling processes are highlighted. This is the 
first comprehensive</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>treatise on photosynthetic nitrogen assimilation. 
Written by a</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>multinational team of experts, this work will be an 
invaluable tool for</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>students at final-year undergraduate and graduate 
level, as well as</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>essential and engaging reading for all those whose 
enthusiasm is fired by</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&nbsp;the intricate metabolic networks that support 
the growth of the earth's</FONT>

<BR><FONT SIZE=2>major crops.</FONT>
