Bioindication of air pollution effects near a copper smelter in Brazil using mango trees and soil microbiological properties.

Abstract

A field study near the copper smelter of a large industrial complex examined air pollution effects on vegetation and soil parameters in Camaçari (northeast Brazil). Close to the smelter, soil pH-value was lower and total acidity as well as organic carbon contents were higher compared with a site far from the source and two reference sites. The acidification… (More)
