    This account is dedicated to Dr. Guivi Sanadze for his career long devotion to science and in recognition of his discovery of isoprene emission by trees during photosynthesis. Investigations on the emission of isoprene and other monoterpenes now have been extended globally to encompass other terrestrial vegetation, algae, waters, and marine life in the world's oceans. And new understandings are emerging on the important roles of monoterpenes and other volatile chemical emissions in plant biological signaling and in global atmospheric chemistry. Such investigations can be traced historically through Guivi's pioneering isoprene emission research as a young graduate student. Dr. Sanadze took a formative sabbatical leave in my photosynthesis lab at the University of Georgia, USA in 1976. I admire his strong commitment to science and am indebted for his warm friendship over these decades (CCB).
