Overview

The book UV-B and Biosphere summarizes the current status of knowledge related to effects of UV-B radiation on plant life, ranging from gene to ecosystem level. Responses to UV-B radiation of marine, fresh water and terrestrial ecosystem processes are covered. In addition the interaction of UV-B with CO2 enrichment, temperature increase and other environmental factors are considered.
The following topics are discussed:

  • Penetration of UV-B into natural waters
  • Responses of marine and freshwater algae to UV-B
  • UV-B, UV-A and PAR in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems
  • Methodology of UV-B supplementation and filtration
  • UV-B tolerant and UV-B sensitive plant species
  • Adaptations to UV-B radiation
  • UV-B and plant morphology and allocation patterns
  • UV-B effects on secondary metabolites
  • UV-B and plant life history characteristics
  • UV-B and reproduction
  • UV-B and primary production
  • UV-B and plant species composition
  • UV-B and decomposition
  • UV-B and biogeochemical cycles
