This is a very interesting book which shows that at least one protozoan species is ideally suited for the investigation of various fundamental biological problems. The author does not offer a monograph of the genus ; taxonomy and metabolism for instance are only lightly touched upon, since they are adequately treated in reports by other authors. The author essentially tries to correlate morphological features, especially as revealed by electron microscopy, with biochemical and biophysical studies dealing primarily with the problem of photoreception. Emphasis is therefore laid on such topics as pigments, structure and physical characteristics of photoreceptors, environmental factors influencing pigments and photosynthesis and related problems. While is not one of the organisms of immediate concern to the majority of the readers of the Journal, the book nevertheless deserves to be read widely by them because of the fundamental approach it represents.
