The Effect of Dust on Photosynthesis and its Significance for Roadside Plants
Dust scraped from a car exhaust and ground to a particle size range of 1-10 μm was applied at measured rates to leaves Viburnum tinus. Its effects on photosynthesis and leaf diffusion resistance were measured over a range of light intensities.
