About this book


In response to the overwhelming concern for possible acute and long-term effects of ozone depletion on terrestrial and aquatic life, this volume presents a comprehensive collection of review articles from an internationally acknowledged group of experts. Emphasis is on human health, with chapters on skin cancer, DNA, and vitamin D. Written for photobiologists, dermatologists, and biophysicists, this is the most thorough treatment of the subject available.
