UV-B as an environmental factor in plant life: stress and regulation

Rozema, Jelte; van de Staaij, Jos; Björn, Lars Olof LU and Caldwell, Martyn (1997) In Trends in Ecology & Evolution 12(1). p.22-28
Abstract
Recent studies indicate that increasing solar UV-B is not merely an environmental stress for plants. Solar UV-B can cause plant morphogenetic effects, which can, in turn, modify the architecture of plants and the structure of a vegetation, In addition, UV-B radiation affect the production of various secondary metabolites (such as flavonoids, tannins and lignin) with important physiological and ecological consequences.
