Potential damage to photosynthesis and other plant processes by increased UV-B has been demonstrated at the physiological level and for a few species at the stand level in the field. Other responses of vegetation including shifts in competitive balance of plant species may be of equal importance. Interactions with other environmental factors and difficulties in making realistic assessments are discussed.
