    Sammanfattning

    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
    them.
