Abstract
    Effects of increased UV-B radiation on plants from terrestric ecosystems will be negative, but large differences exist between species in their sensitivity to (enhanced) UV-B radiation. Field studies on the effects of enhanced UV-B are scant and should be extended to make general conclusions possible. Among two species of salt marsh plants species tested, the dicot Aster tripolium showed marked reduction of growth and photosynthesis. Growth and photosynthesis were less markedly inhibited by UV-B radiation in the monocot Spartina anglica. The prediction of the ecosystem response to increased UV-B radiation needs extension of experimental field studies. In further studies of the effects of increasing UV-B, other environmental factors forming part of the global climatic change should be included.
