Tried to hide metabolic issues already reviewed in Volumes I and II of The Biochemistry and body structure of Protozoa (eds. Lwoff, and Lwoff and Hutner). to these attracted to the wider elements of picture synthesis and photoreception, reference is made to Photosynthesis and comparable methods, quantity I, and elements I and a couple of of quantity II, through E. Rabinowitch; the Brookhaven Symposium at the Photochemical Ap paratus: Its constitution and serve as (1959); the hot York Academy of Sciences convention on Photoreception (1958), and to the various fresh symposia, experiences, and present magazine literature. This e-book is essentially desirous about using Euglena in examine ing photoreception; it's also was hoping that biologists, biochemists, and biophysicists will locate in Euglena a remarkably flexible examine software for attacking a few of their difficulties. i need to thank Drs. S. H. Hutner and L. Provasoli of the Haskins Laboratories for introducing me to Euglena as an outstanding experimental "animal," in addition to for lots of stimulating discussions and persisted enthusiasm. i'm indebted to Drs. G. E. Palade and ok. R.
