Physiological effects, wind reentrainment, and rainwash of lead aerosol particulate deposited on plant leaves.


w Leaves of soybean (Glycine max L.) were experimentally fumigated with PbCl:, aerosol particulate. No indication was found for either an effect of P b on photosynthesis or for intraplant movement of topically applied Pb. Reentrainment windspeeds up to 6.7 m s-l had no effect in removing aerosol particulate, whereas simulated rainfall removed up to 95% of… (More)
