Editorial Reviews

Biologists, botanists, and environmental scientists from around the world review the major research that has led to the current understanding of environmental pollution and its effects on plants at the individual, population, and community levels. Their topics include the effects on the behavior of woody perennials, carbon-dioxide enrichment of the atmosphere and the water economy of plants, ultraviolet effects, the state of knowledge and perspectives in South America, using protective chemicals to assess the effects of ambient ozone on plants, wild plant and crop plant species for the microspore analysis of a polluted environment, and phytochelatins and metal tolerance.
