Physiological Processes and Plant Responses to Ozone Exposure

  • R. L. Heath

Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 127)


To maintain plant growth and productivity in any ecosystem, plants must respond to all stresses in a carefully controlled manner. However, oxidant air pollutants constitute a stress that seems to lower plant productivity and to make the plant more sensitive to other diverse stresses, thus seemingly overwhelming the plant’s resistance (Heck et al. 1988; US EPA 1988; also see other chapters in this volume). On the other hand, nitrogen-containing air pollutants at low concentrations, e.g., NO2, may add to the plant’s productivity when nitrogen is limiting (US EPA 1992). Current problems are (1) at what level do these pollutants individually cause the plant’s productivity and resistance to be altered; (2) what are the mechanisms by which the pollutants induce plant alterations; and ultimately (3) how does the plant respond to multiple, combined stresses?
