List of biography and history published mostly in Photosynthesis Research, 1988–2008

Abstract

As an outgoing Editor of the Historical Corner of Photosynthesis Research, I present here the following list of papers of historical interest for the benefit of all. The first paper I published was: Govindjee (1988) The Discovery of Chlorophyll–protein Complex by Emil L. Smith during 1937–1941. Photosynth Res 16:285–289. In order to bring to the readers this List of references on the historical papers published in this journal (and some even elsewhere), I have organized these papers under the following headings (some are arbitrarily assigned to a particular section since they may fit in more than one section): (I) biographies (that include obituaries and tributes, arranged alphabetically, with dates of birth and death); (II) recognitions of scientists (arranged alphabetically) by others; (III) personal perspectives (arranged alphabetically); (IV) historical papers (first chronologically, by the year of publication, and then alphabetically by the names of the editors); (V) special issues of Photosynthesis Research (chronologically by the year of publication and then alphabetically by the names of editors); and lastly (VI) Conferences (available reports in Photosynthesis Research).
