For that reason research is now under way Plant stress from air pollution book assess the long-term effects of chronic exposure to low levels of air pollution—what most people experience—as well as to determine how air pollutants interact with one another in the body and with physical factors such as nutrition, stress, alcohol, cigarette smoking, and common medicines.

This book which aims to give an objective overview of air pollution biology, considers the progress of research and current state of knowledge in the science.

This multi-authored work integrates the varied plant growth responses to the pollution stress; the focus of the attention is plant rather than pollutant. This portrays a clearer picture of plant performance versus air pollution, and helps develop a better insight of the pollution-based disturbances at the different levels of plant life.

Water Stress and Crop Plants: A Sustainable Approach presents an up-to-date in-depth coverage of drought and flooding stress in plants, including the types, causes and consequences on plant growth and development.

Laboratory study, Water Air Soil Pollut,Acute stress can produce “fight-or-flight” responses that might counterbalance the effects of pollution—for example, stress-induced bronchodilation might temporarily reduce or mask bronchial constriction caused by air pollution.

Chronic stress is more likely to gradually weaken the immune system, increasing susceptibility to pollution Cited by: 5. A new laboratory study documents different responses to air pollution in stressed and nonstressed rats, supporting the epidemiologic evidence that chronic stress may alter respiratory responses to air pollution [EHP –; Clougherty et al.].

A high amount of H + activity results in an acidic soil condition, while low activity results in a predominance of OH-activity, leading to alkaline soil. Although some plant species have preferences for more extreme acidic or alkaline soil conditions, it is generally regarded that a slightly acidic pH range of is.

The damage caused by air pollution usually is severe during warm, clear, still, humid weather when the barometric pressure is high. Toxicants accumulate near the e arth’s surface when the warm air aloft traps cooler air at the ground level–a phenomenon called “air inversion.” Plant responses to air pollutants are helpful in: Size: KB.

INTRODUCTION. Air pollution is one of the severe problems world is facing today. It deteriorates ecological condition and can be defined as the fluctuation in any atmospheric constituent from the value that would have existed without human activity (Tripathi and Gautam, ).In recent past, air pollutants, responsible for vegetation injury and crop yield losses, are causing increased.
