    • From author's Introduction: The humble beginnings of this book was a very simple question, asked more than ten years ago by a good friend who knew that I was a biologist and had done my graduate studies in botany and plant ecology."Do you know who discovered photosynthesis?" I had to admit that I did nor know. Since then I asked every biologist I met the same question. Nobody was able to give me the answer.
