The present publication presents an overview of current knowledge of the effects of air pollution and climate change, at the biophysical, biochemical and physiological level of trees, against the background of climatic conditions and natural stresses. The authors provide an overview of their recent work, providing an entrance to a particular field of research rather than presenting unpublished material.
This book will serve the reader in providing an overview of ongoing activities and recent findings.
