Ozone effects on trees


, : Ozone effects on trees. Arboriculture Research and Information Note Arboricultural Advisory and Information Service, UK ( 132/96/EXT): 4 pp.

Ozone (a photochemically produced air pollutant) is present in potentially damaging concentrations during the summertime in Britain, particularly in rural areas. There is evidence of damage to both coniferous and deciduous species in the field, with indications of changes in sensitivity to other stresses. However, on the present evidence, it is not possible to quantify these effects, and difficult to separate them from those of drought, as the 2 conditions often occur together.

Leaf or needle ozone uptake was estimated for young trees at seven experimental sites across Europe using a stomatal conductance simulation model. Dose-response relationships based on cumulative leaf uptake of ozone (CUO) were calculated using dif...

We investigated the effects of simulated acid rain and elevated ozone on tissue water relations of mature clones of a fast-growing genotype of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) and their half-sib seedlings. Whole seedlings and branc...

Ozone affects adult trees significantly, but effects on stem growth are hard to prove and difficult to correlate with the primary sites of ozone damage at the leaf level. To simulate ozone effects in a mechanistic way, at a level relevant to fore...

The increase in mineralization and biodegradability of natural organic matter (NOM) by ozone-vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) in comparison with ozone, VUV, ozone-ultraviolet (UV), and UV were investigated. The effects of operating parameters including pH...

Chronic long-term exposure to near-ambient concentrations of ozone could contribute to forest decline in several regions of the world, in combination with other biotic and abiotic factors. It is generally admitted that, under ozone stress, biochem...

Ozone is the most important air pollutant and its concentration in ambient air is still rising. Ozone concentrations measured at reference height (50 m is EMEP ozone modelling height) do not reflect the real concentration at the top of the vegetat...

Biospheric ozone has become a widely distributed air pollutant, and a growing body of research indicates that ozone impacts forest health and productivity. Ozone effects are mediated by the ozone concentration present in the external environment a...
