Since the release of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) toxic release inventory (TRI) estimates for 1987, there has been a heightened concern over the nation's air quality. Primarily, the concern has been directed at human health effects in industrial-urban areas. The fact that many airborne chemicals pose hazards to human health is only one aspect of the problem. The continued deposition of airborne toxic chemicals pose threats to both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, the discussion is limited to terrestrial vegetation.
