About this book

The study of air pollution effects on vegetation has made rapid progress in the last five years. At the 3rd International Symposium on Air Pollutants and Plant Metabolism, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, June 1992, the world's experts gathered to discuss the metabolic and molecular processes influenced by air pollutants. Each speaker was chosen to cover progress, especially that of the last 5 years, in various areas related to plant metabolism and air pollution effects. The ideas presented at the conference are the subject of this highly informative book. _


Contents

The potential effect of global climate change on terrestrial vegetation; the potential effects of concurrent increases in temperature, CO2 and O3 on net photosynthesis, as mediated by RubisCo; interactive effects of temperature and atmospheric CO2 on physiology and growth; CO2 effects on photosynthetic end product synthesis and feedback; effects of altered carbon dioxide concentrations on gene expression; free radical scavenging; alterations of plant metabolism by ozone exposure.
