Daylight UV-B (UV-B) radiation (280–315 nm) is, because of its
photochemical effects and potential destructive impact, an
important environmental factor for plants. After decades of
fruitless attempts, a receptor molecule, UVR8, for sensing of
ambient UV-B radiation by plants has been characterized, and
the initial steps in signal transduction have been identified.
There are, however, other signaling pathways, and there are
apparent contradictions in the literature. There is still much
to find out about the complex signaling network in plants
for processing of information about the daylight surrounding
