Thank you for asking about this difference in LED (Light Emitting Diodes) and UV (Ultraviolet) lights.

LED's are in the range of infrared, visible or near-ultraviolet, UV is ultraviolet including UVA, UVB and UVC, they fall in different areas of the light spectrum.

Here is a good graph explaining and showing the difference in the ranges http://www.uvguide.co.uk/whatisuv.htm This site is also one of the best there is about animals and UV lighting, so you might want to take a look at some of the other studies and articles on there.
