Effect of temperature on response of plants to ozone as conducted in a specially designed plant fumigation chamber

Pl. Dis. Reptr, 52: 12, 957-960

Effect of temperature on response of plants to ozone as conducted in a specially designed plant fumigation chamber

In an environmental growth chamber, modified for air pollution studies, Bel W3 cigar wrapper tobacco plants showed an inverse relation between sensitivity to the phytotoxicant ozone and temp., which may explain the higher incidence of ozone damage to crops in Del. in spring and autumn although higher ozone levels occur in the summer.
