About this book

Biodiversity is the delicate ecological balance within biological systems such as species and populations. Evidence suggests that air pollution disrupts and impoverishes ecosystem processes, and genetic and population diversity. Based on a symposium conducted by the EPA's Environmental Research Laboratory, this book pulls together current knowledge on the subject, assesses its relevance, and offers a framework for future research on the impact of air pollution on biodiversity through all levels of biological organization. The text also discusses the best available control technology, management practices, alternative chemicals, and legislative ways to reduce the impact of air pollution on biodiversity.


Contents

Air pollution effects on diversity of populations and communities. Air pollution effects on ecosystem processes. Air pollution-biodiversity research needs.
