Plant Responses to UV Themed Collection of articles published by Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences A collection of articles on Plant Responses to UV contributed by UV4Plants members and edited by Gareth Jenkins has now been published. It can be accessed at the journal’s web site. The collection is based substantially on presentations given at the 2018 Network Meeting of UV4Plants in Bled and includes the wide-ranging perspective article coordinated by Matthew Robson that was based on workshop discussions at the meeting. The collection highlights the breadth of research being undertaken by UV4Plants members 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. Some additional articles that have not yet completed the review and revision process can still be added to the collection when they are accepted.
A preprint of a new handbook titled R for Photobiology is now available. Only a few pages are based on Beyond the Visible, the handbook produced during COST Action FA0906 UV4growth. Everything else is new material. As authors we have decided to publish it before it is finished, so that we can make changes and additions based on your comments. It is available through Leanpub. For dowloading the PDF, whether you decide to pay for it or not, you will have to register as user of the Leanpub the site. You will only receive an occasional message from the authors of the book you have downloaded when a significant update to the books become available. And you will be able to opt-out from receiving them. Hoping that you will find the handbook useful, and looking forward to your suggestions for improvements!
