The cellular responses of marine algae and invertebrates to ultraviolet radiation, alone and in combination with other common abiotic stressors

This chapter provides an overview of the key physiological responses in marine algae and invertebrates exposed to ultraviolet radiation. It outlines the importance of spectral irradiances and biological weighting functions and discusses in what ways UV-B radiation may influence the responses of marine organisms to stressors associated with climate change and pollution, including ocean warm
