Sunburned trees?

January 1993
American Forests;Jan/Feb93, Vol. 99 Issue 1/2, p38
Discusses how researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have found that solar radiation may be damaging the pollen of various tree species. How this occurs; Species that may be able to handle the UV-B radiation the best; More.
