Overview

The book explores the relationship between forest decline and ozone. It comprises a broad range of methods concerning field ecology, model ecosystem research, and basic physiological and biochemical research. Prominent features are the use of ozone dose rather than concentration values only, and the illustration of ozone effects in numerous exciting color photographs. The presented results are essential for designing new field and laboratory experiments.
The book is a must for anyone involved in air-pollution research!
