[Extract] Photosynthesis converts solar energy into chemical bond energy by capturing CO2 from the atmosphere and incorporating it into organic molecules. It is a process central to the global carbon cycle, food and energy production, and indeed life on Earth. Understanding and modelling photosynthesis therefore has a large role to play in society’s quest for a sustainable future. Models of photosynthesis are employed, for example, in predicting the impact of rising atmospheric CO2 on future climate and in efforts to develop crops that utilize resources more efficiently. In this Special Issue, we bring together a collection of papers aimed at improving models of photosynthesis and their parameterization for terrestrial plants.
