Overview

The research in this book covers papers on a great number of research projects on the responses of plants and crops of natural terrestrial e cosystems, of agro-ecosystems, and of aquatic ecosystems, to enhanced solar UV-B as a result of stratospheric ozone depletion. Some introduc tory chapters deal with general aspects of how plants respond to UV-B radiation. The book is of great importance for those who are involved in global change topics: biologists, ecologists, earth scientists, ag ronomists, environmental scientists, and those who develop environment al policy.
