UV-B radiation and plant life: molecular biology to ecology.

Book cover for UV-B radiation and plant life: molecular biology to ecology.


This book contains 11 chapters focusing on the UV-B radiation effects on plants from the UV-B environment and ecosystem impact, UV-B changes in plant physiology and secondary metabolism, the biochemistry and molecular biology of UV-B responses and isolation and characterization of the UV-B photoreceptor and signal transduction. Some important applications of UV-B in agriculture and horticulture are also presented.
