The effects on plants of the enhancement of ultraviolet radiation caused by stratospheric ozone depletion


Research Journal of Food and Agriculture 12(8): 20-27
The effects on plants of the enhancement of ultraviolet radiation caused by stratospheric ozone depletion
The effects of increased UV radiation on plants is reviewed, including consideration of assessment of the amount of UV radiation and leaf damage. Physiological aspects discussed include the effects on photosynthesis, chlorophyll and other pigments.
