The present study was conducted at Defence Institute of Bio Energy Research (DIBER) Haldwani. Fully grown potted-plants of ten ornamental species viz., Scindapsus aures (Golden pothos), Ficus benjamiana (Weeping fig), Hedera helix (English ivy), Quercue leucotrichopora (Banjh oak), Aglaonema crispum (Chinese evergreen), Dracaena marginata (Rededged dracaena), Codiaeum verigatum (croton), Chlorophytum comosum (Spider plant), Sansevieria trifasciata (Snake plant), Chrysalidocarpus lutescens… Expand

Pollution tolerance and distribution pattern of plants in surrounding area of coal-fired industries.
TLDR
Investigation of vegetation composition around coal-fired industries i.e. brick industries found Ricinus communis with APTI 81.10 was found to be the most resistant wild plant showing uniform distribution at all the polluted sites, while Lepidium sativum was recorded as the most sensitive plant and found to been present only at the less polluted sites.

Formaldehyde removal by potted plant-soil systems.
TLDR
Investigation of formaldehyde removal by potted spider plant, aloe and golden pothos with potted soils showed that the potted plant-soil systems could remove formaldehyde from air in a long time, indicating that further elevating formaldehyde Removal capacity for plant- soil system will be realized by increasing exposed surface of potted soil.

TLDR
Scientific studies of plants’ ability to remove VOCs from indoor air are reviewed, indicating that plant induced removal of V OCs is a combination of direct and indirect mechanisms, and factors affecting the efficiency and rate of VOC removal by plants. Expand
