Abstract Research was directed toward obtaining information regarding air pollution effects on forests, parks, cemeteries, school and college campuses and residential ornamentals. The estimated exposure to air pollution was determined. An effort was made to assess the probable degree of damage on the basis of type and level of pollution, and sensitivity of the plant, shrub, or tree to damage. Efforts were made to confirm calculated losses to commercial crops in several specific locations. Tables showing the relative sensitivity of different plant species to oxidants, sulfur dioxide and fluorides were prepared. (Author)
Highlights Notes The objectives of the first years study were to review methods used by other agencies to estimate crop losses; literature review on the relative sensitivity of crop and ornamental plants; listing potential sources of pollutants by county and severity of pollution by county; calculation of the economic value in these counties; and derivation of formulae for evaluating the dollar loss.
