Remembering Otto Kandler (1920–2017) and his contributions

Govindjee, ; Tanner, Widmar


After a brief prologue on Otto Kandler's life, we describe briefly his pioneering work on photosynthesis (photophosphorylation and the carbon cycle) and his key participation in the discovery of the concept of three forms of life (Archaea, Prokarya, and Eukarya). With Otto Kandler's passing, both the international photosynthesis and microbiology communities have lost an internationally unique, eminent, and respected researcher and teacher who exhibited a rare vibrancy and style.
