The Antarctic ozone hole is reported to develop annually in Austral spring since the late 1970s and results in increasing irradiances of solar UV-B radiation on the earth’s surface and in the aquatic environment (Farman et al. 1985, Häder et al. 1998). Exposure of organisms to enhanced UV-B radiation results in multiple damage, e.g. dimerisation of DNA molecules, formation of reactive oxygen species, inhibition of photosynthesis and growth (Roleda 2006, Lesser 2006, Rautenberger & Bischof 2006… CONTINUE READING
