Nostalgia

The following publications are reviews charting Prof. Walker’s 50 year career in photosynthesis research. The publications provide fascinating insights for researchers of all ages into the trials and tribulations of photosynthesis researcher.

Developing technologies through the years allowed experiments which were previously laborious and time consuming by nature to become more accessible to the wider scientific community which in turn facilitated a new approach to the study of photosynthetic activity.

Prof. Walker alongside other cherished colleagues (notably Tom Delieu) contributed hugely to the development of photosynthesis measurements and these publications tell the story.
