About this book

UV-B and Biosphere summarizes the current status of knowledge related to effects of UV-B radiation to 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 is considered.
