Removal of atmospheric particles by leaves and twigs of urban trees: some preliminary observations and assessment of research needs



Removal of atmospheric particles by leaves and twigs of urban trees: some preliminary observations and assessment of research needs



Environmental Management 1(4): 317-330



A review of the evidence for the hypothesis that plants remove particles from the atmosphere is followed by a report of SEM observations of leaf discs collected from mature London plane (Platanus acerifolia) trees in a Street in New Haven, Connecticut, from May to Nov., 1975.
