In addition to the major air pollutants, other agents may cause extensive damage to vegetation. One such agent is the herbicide 2, 4-D. Very low concentrations of 2, 4-D cause defoliation, dwarfing, curling, stiffening, and twisting (Figure 52). Cotton, grape, and toma- to plants are especially sensitive to 2, 4-D.

Mechanisms of Air Pollution-Induced Toxicity Pulmonary toxicity. The general consensus is that once deposited in the lungs, air pollutants trigger an inflammation-related cascade (64, 65). Intra-tracheal instillation of ambient particles was shown to induce direct inflammatory response in rat by:

"This book's continued emphasis on using primary quantitative data to illustrate plant behaviour and function maintains its authoritative position as the core text for environmental plant physiology. This third edition sees the scope of the book expanding upwards and outwards with a new section on remote sensing, and inwards to cover the Cited by: 20 Effects of Airborne Pollutants Eva J.

The mechanisms of recovery from pollutant injury have been described by Tingey and Taylor (). The extent and speed of re-establishment of a normal metabolic state following pollutant mixture injury will be an important determinant of economic loss from exposure to mixtures, but economic losses have not been estimated on these bases. Effects of air pollution from road transport on growth and physiology of six transplanted bryophyte species. Motor vehicles emit a cocktail of pollutants; however, little is known about the effects of these pollutants on bryophytes located in roadside habitats.
