'... a gold mine of ideas for experimental biologists in search of research topics ... the technical content and organization are excellent. Although the book is directed to plant biologists of all persuasions and the geophysicists who monitor ozone and UV-B will likely find much of interest.' BioScience
'I recommend it to the academic libraries across the world as a welcome addition to their collection.' Sagar V. Krupa, Annals of Botany
"...my highlighted, underlined, and annotated review copy of Plants and UV-B has become my principal reference on this fascinating topic. It's an expensive book, but one that I enthusiastically recommend." Forrest M. Mims III, BioScience
"Plants and UV-B is a fascinating volume, as much for its ability to highlight the gaps in current knowledge as for its broad and integrative approach. By raising so many questions, it should serve as a catalyst for much future work. I highly recommend it for plant biologists and for graduate students who are interested in biochemistry, physiology, ecology, and environmental sciences." Thomas J. Herbert, Plant Science Bulletin
"Until now, those wanting to learn about this topic have had to rely on hard-to-find conference proceedings and searches of the various ecology, horticulture, and photobiology journals and Web sites. Now, there is Plants and UV-B, a comprehensive collection of 17 tightly edited survey articles on virtually every key aspect of this timely topic... Editor Peter J. Lumsden's deft editorial touch is clearly evident throughout the text, and the technical content and organization are excellent...Although the book is directed to plant biologists, biologists of all persuasions and the geophysicists who monitor ozone and UV-B will likely find much of interest." BioScience
"This book constitutes an excellent review of current knowledge in the area of the changing UV-B environment and plant responses. This is an excellent source of information and further references on the subject of plants and UV-B." Dawn Gordon, CBA/ABC Bulletin
...this book is amazingly complete on the possible future effects of increased UV-B levels on plants and the effect this could have on the entirety of life on planet Earth...'Plants and UV-B: Responses to Environmental Change' has information to enhance the work of physicists, photobiologists, cell and whole plant physiologists...I believe it fills a void in that it is a comprehensive review of our current knowledge of the subject of UV-B and plants and would be an excellent addition for the library of any institution offering advanced degrees in the sciences or to a researcher's bookshelf."-Renee M. Schloupt, HortScience
