Abstract

This editorial is inspired by discussions that took place during a workshop held in June 2017 at the Global Change Research Institute, in Brno in the Czech Republic. The workshop was organised by Dr Otmar Urban and Prof Marcel Jansen, under the auspices of UV4Plants, the International Association for Plant UV Research (https://www.uv4plants.org/), and focussed on interactive effects of UV-B radiation in a complex environment. Discussions at the workshop revealed both a divergent use of terminology, but also exciting new ideas about the functional role of UV-B sensing in plants. In this editorial, stress-terminology is reviewed with an emphasis on UV-B photobiology and the interactive effects of UV-B with other environmental variables. The scientific contribution of the papers published in this special issue of Plant Physiology and Biochemistry is then explored. The published papers reveal interactive effects of UV-B with a broad range of other environmental variables. This wide range of interactions triggers questions about the functional role of UV-B radiation, and indeed the UV-B photoreceptor UVR8 (UV RESISTANCE LOCUS 8). These questions are discussed in the final section where the function of UVR8 is discussed. This editorial is unlikely to be the “final word” on interactive effects of UV-B radiation in a complex environment, however, it is hoped that the text will stimulate development of “novel hypotheses” about the function of plant UV-sensing.
