    POLLUTION 6 There are other causes of air pollution, but humans and ecosystems are greatly affected by means of transportation and manufacturing plants. When looking at research completed about the environmental and social implications of air pollution, one can find numerous aspects such as the effects on ozone, human health, and ecosystems. How Air Pollution Harms Trees. Whilst acid rain is a major cause of damage to vegetation, air pollutants which can also be harmful directly. These include sulphur dioxide and ozone. Sulphur Dioxide. Sulphur dioxide, one of the main components of acid rain, has direct effects on vegetation.

    Figure 1. Ozone injury to petunia plants. PLANT DAMAGE FROM AIR POLLUTION Air pollution damage to vegetation has been recognized for more than years. Air pollutants are a fact of modern life. The best guess is that between and million tons of man-made air pollutants are released each year into the atmosphere in the United Size: KB.   Air Pollution and Agriculture. M.R. Ashmore.

This standard textbook provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the direct and indirect impacts of air pollution on plant life. Written by an international team of experts, the book covers the main historical aspects and sources of pollutants, atmospheric transport and transformations of pollutants, and issues of global change and the use of science in air pollution policy.

some conifers are also very susceptible to injury from fluorine accumulation. Other species, such as cotton, bean, spin-ach, and forage crops are much more re. Responses of Plants to Air Pollution examines the effects of air pollutants, individually and synergistically, on both higher and lower plants.

The subject matter overlaps into a wide range of disciplines including agronomy, plant anatomy, biochemistry, cryptogamic botany, ecology, entomology, forestry, horticulture, landscape architecture.

Table 6 is a summary of the well-known airborne pollutants that cause vegetation injury. The investigator will need to use caution in diagnosing pollution injury symptoms; and where there are uncertainties, he should obtain help from scientific experts.

Abstract. This book addresses air pollution's sources and movement; biochemical, cellular, and whole-plant effects, impacts on agricultural and natural systems; and control.

The effects of convective turbulence and atmospheric stability are well illustrated. The diagnosis of air pollution injury to plants and mimicking symptoms are discussed.

Air pollution injury on plants has been carefully documented in recent years. In some areas, injury on certain species has been serious and has represented a limiting production factor.

This type of damage is more noticeable, but probably not as great as the sub-lethal chronic injury that.

Effects of Air Pollutants on Plants Air pollution injury to plants can be evident 1n various ways. Injury to foliage may become visible In a short time and take the form of necrotic lesio'ns (dead tissue) or it can develop slowly and become manifest as a yellowing or chlorosis of the leaf.
