Book description

One of the predicted consequences of the depletion of stratospheric ozone is an increase in the amount of ultraviolet light reaching the surface of the earth, in particular UV-B (320–280nm). Although the real effects are as yet unknown, this change in radiation could have profound consequences for plant growth and productivity. The need for information concerning the relationship between plants and UV-B is therefore pressing. This volume brings together authoritative contributions from leading experts in UV-B/plant studies and is unique in considering interactions at various scales, ranging from the level of the cell through to the level of the community. Information concerning ozone depletion and physical aspects of UV-B radiation complements the biological information to provide a thorough and comprehensive review of the status of knowledge.

Reviews

‘ The collection of papers presented is an excellent choice, covering a broad range of work. The range of approaches, from biochemical and cellular studies to discussion of ecological effects, represents the best of a modern, integrative approach to biology. Plants and UV-B is a fascinating volume, as much for its ability to highlight the gaps in current knowledge as for its broad and integrative approach. By raising so many questions, it should serve as a catalyst for future work. I highly recommend it for plant biologists and graduate students who are interested in biochemistry, physiology, ecology, and environmental sciences.’

‘… a gold mine of ideas for experimental biologists in search of research topics … the technical content and organization are excellent. Although the book is directed to plant biologists of all persuasions and the geophysicists who monitor ozone and UV-B will likely find much of interest.’

‘I recommend it to the academic libraries across the world as a welcome addition to their collection.’
