UV Radiation and Arctic Ecosystems

Although there are some biological processes that are supported by UV radiation, most organisms are stressed by it in various ways, e.g. through DNA damage. Top international experts present an integrated overview of UV radiation and its effects on terrestrial, freshwater and marine Arctic biota. Increased stratospheric ozone depletion and the corresponding increase in ground levels of UV radiation as well as ambient, "natural" UV radiation as a key ecological factor in the Arctic spring and summer are discussed in detail. Additionally, basic information on Arctic ecosystems is given. The volume provides not only an excellent account of present-day knowledge of the subject, but also describes the state of the art on which future research can be built.

Kritik


From the reviews of the first edition:

"... an excellent insight into Arctic ecosystems as well as the effects of UV radiation on them ... The book is likely to be an important addition to libraries and bookshelves of ecologists, photobiologists, limnologists, and marine biologists, and probably many more besides." (Polar Record)

"Hessens's multi-author volume is an important work as it provides a logical series of chapters that address the role of UV radiation in the Arctic. ... The book is a nice balance in many respects. Spatially, many of the chapters cover different areas of the Arctic. Phylogenetically, we are treated to an examination of organisms from bacteria to humans and most groups in between. ... the book is an excellent insight into Artic ecosystems as well as the effects of UV radiation on them." (Charles Cockell, Polar Record, Vol. 39, 2003)
