The annual changes of chloroplast pigments content in current- and previous-year needles of Norway spruce (Picea abies L. Karst.) exposed to cement dust pollution

A study was conducted during July 2000-June 2001 to compare the chloroplast pigment (chlorophyll and carotenoid) content in current- and previous-year needles of cultivated spruce (Picea abies) trees grown in urban areas of Croatia polluted and unpolluted by cement dust as well as the speed of progression in the expected differences. In both needle generations, all measured pigments were reduced in dust-exposed needles compared to those harvested from unpolluted by cement dust.
