Air Pollutants and Their Effects on the Terrestrial Ecosystem is the first integrated work to present all current research on the effects of pollutants on vegetation, soils, and ecosystems. It describes the mechanisms by which pollutants act on the ecosystem components and interact with each other, as well as the latest research methods, regulatory issues, and assessments of the current state of research and future trends. Spanning a number of disciplines, from atmospheric processes, deposition mechanisms, and biological effects to research techniques, Air Pollutants and Their Effects on the Terrestrial Ecosystem examines nine distinct areas of pollution science. Prefaced by a summary of government and regulatory issues, it follows a logical "source to sink" order. Each section contains two topical review papers and a synthesis of views on a wide variety of related topics, including:

  • the atmospheric chemistry and quantification of air pollutants
  • transport and deposition of air pollutants on terrestrial vegetation and soils
  • terrestrial vegetation/air pollutant interactions with gaseous and nongaseous air pollutants
  • soil/air pollutant interactions
  • data acquisition, interpretation, modelling and application in terrestrial vegetation/air pollution interaction studies
  • and terrestrial ecosystem impacts by air pollutants—the state of current studies and future needs.
Air pollution is a problem to be tackled by many disciplines in a coordinated effort. Stressing integration of research efforts and covering what we already know, this book addresses such a need.

Meet the Author

About the editors Allan H. Legge is Professional Associate at The Kananaskis Centre for Environmental Research at The University of Calgary, Alberta, in Canada. He is a member of the TE-2 Ecological Effects Committee of the Air Pollution Control Association, the Canadian Petroleum Association Environmental Research Advisory Council, and a number of other associations. Dr. Legge received his PhD in plant genetics in 1971 from Oregon State University, Corvallis, and has been active in air pollution research on forest ecosystems since 1973. He was principal investigator of the ten-year multidisciplinary West White-court Case Study which investigated the long-term effects of sulphur gas emissions on the boreal forest in western Canada. Dr. Legge is currently principal investigator of biophysical aspects of the seven year Alberta Government-Industry/Acid Deposition Research Program which started in February 1985. Sagar V. Krupa is a Professor in the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. He is a member and past chairman of the TE-2 Ecological Effects Committee of the Air Pollution Control Association, and is at present a member of its Technical Council. He received his PhD from the Natural Sciences and Mathematics Faculty of the University of Uppsala, Sweden. Dr. Krupa has been conducting research and teaching in the field of air pollution since 1972.
