The dominant woody boreal forest plant species were fumigated with 0.34 ppm SO2 under controlled conditions in the laboratory in order to rank their physiological and visual sensitivities to the air pollutant. Deciduous trees and shrubs were much more sensitive than conifers, presumably because...
Interim report on symptomology and threshold levels of air pollutant injury to vegetation, 1975 to 1978Download
Six boreal forest plant species were fumigated in a newly developed environmental growth chamber with SO2 control capability,for up to 40 days at 0.34 ppm SO2. All species showed a gradual decline in CO2 gas exchange which was related to symptom development characteristic of SO2 toxicity. Paper...
