Abstract
Daylight UV-B (UV-B) radiation (280–315 nm) is, because of its

photochemical effects and potential destructive impact, an

important environmental factor for plants. After decades of

fruitless attempts, a receptor molecule, UVR8, for sensing of

ambient UV-B radiation by plants has been characterized, and

the initial steps in signal transduction have been identified.

There are, however, other signaling pathways, and there are

apparent contradictions in the literature. There is still much

to find out about the complex signaling network in plants

for processing of information about the daylight surrounding

them.
