Four dicotyledonous Astcraceac and four monocotyledonous Iridaceac species were grown from seed under three different effective ultraviolet-B (UV-B, 280–320 nm) fluenccs, which approximated those received daily over the natural growing periods of these species at their southerly and northerly distribution limits under ambient stratospheric ozone, and at the northerly limit assuming a 20% ozone depletion. Diminished photochemical efficiencies, delayed flowering, decreased flower production… CONTINUE READING
