Book: UV-B Radiation and Plant Life

Book front cover

The new book “UV-B Radiation and Plant Life: Molecular Biology to Ecology” edited by Brian Jordan is about to be published by CABI with contributions by several UV4Plants members. Source: UV-B Radiation and Plant Life: Molecular Biology to Ecology at CABI’s website. The publisher’s blurb: Ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B) has profound effects on plant growth and development, and exposure varies with ozone depletion and across geographic regions, with ecosystem and agricultural consequences.
