Ozone and its known and potential effects on forests in the eastern United States


Forest decline and ozone A comparison of controlled chamber and field experiments: 69-93
Ozone and its known and potential effects on forests in the eastern United States
This chapter reviews the evidence for ozone-induced effects on forest trees within various regions of the eastern USA: Prunus serotina, Pinus strobus, Populus tremuloides in the Acadia National Park, Maine; Prunus serotina in the Allegheny Plateau region, Pennsylvania; Liriodendron tulipifera, Fraxinus americana and P. serotina in the Shenandoah National Park, Virginia; Pinus elliottii and broadleaves in the SE USA; and broadleaves. including Prunus serotina and Sassafras albidum, in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The authors conclude that many factors affect ozone exposure of forest trees and their responses, that foliar marking is common on many forest tree species, and that physiological responses such as a reduction in net photosynthesis occur. The effects may be altered when competition with other plant species is present, and responses may vary with tree age.
