This handbook explains the effects of various air pollutants on vegetation and how to diagnose the suspected injuries. It discusses the structure and function of plants in relation to air pollution injury and the different pollutants: photochemical oxidants, sulfur dioxide, fluorides, and minor pollutants. It also explains the interactions between pollutants and pollutants and pathogens, discusses mimicking symptoms, and identifies the sources and meteorological aspects of air pollution and the effects of topography on dispersion. The basic procedure and routine for diagnosis of suspected air pollution injury to vegetation is outlines. Charts, glossary and index are included.
Prepared for U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under contract no. 68-02-1344. "EPA/450-3-78-005." Includes marginal tabs. "February 1978." Includes bibliographical references.
