Plant responses to UV

Have you read our collection on Plant responses to UV? Guest Edited by Gareth I Jenkins the collection is available to read online now.

This collection highlights the breadth of research being undertaken to understand how plants respond to UV radiation in the environment. Some articles focus on the mechanisms of UV perception and the consequent regulation of gene expression and downstream responses, while others are concerned with ecological perspectives and applications in crop production.

The themed issue is based substantially on presentations given at the 2018 Network Meeting of UV4Plants, the international association for plant UV research, held in Bled, Slovenia. The meeting included workshop sessions involving researchers with diverse interests in plant UV research, which resulted in an extensive perspective article (see T. M. Robson et al.) integrating the broad spectrum of plant UV research and highlighting areas where future research could be directed.
