About this book

The challenge of maintaining a sustainable environment is the most pressing issue of our time. Global climate change, ozone layer depletion, acid depositions, water, air, and soil pollution, and vanishing species are the major issues of regional and global concern. These changes, while not always seen immediately, affect plants - the primary producers of the ecosystems. The extant losses to plant species and the consequences for animal and human welfare are difficult to assess unless the factors responsible are characterized, and their mechanism of action and tolerance strategies are identified. Environmental Pollution and Plant Responses is a comprehensive book that presents and analyzes the most current research on the causal factors contributing to the deteriorating environmental quality and its effect on plant performance. The diverse problems include: environmental pollution and global climate change, response patterns of plants at different levels, mechanisms of interaction, tolerance strategies and future research prospects. Anyone with an interest in researching or writing about the environment will benefit from this book. They will gain an appreciation of the complexities of environmental problems and their effects on the functioning of ecosystems at all levels.
