Plant surface reactions: an opportunistic ozone defence mechanism impacting atmospheric chemistry

  title={Plant surface reactions: an opportunistic ozone defence mechanism impacting atmospheric chemistry},
  author={Werner Jud and Lukas Fischer and E. Canaval and Georg Wohlfahrt and A. Tissier and Armin Hansel},
Elevated tropospheric ozone concentrations are considered a toxic threat to plants, responsible for global crop losses with associated economic costs of several billion dollars per year. Plant injuries have been linked to the uptake of ozone through stomatal pores and oxidative damage of the internal leaf tissue. But a striking question remains: can surface reactions limit the stomatal uptake of ozone and therefore reduce its detrimental effects to plants? In this laboratory study we could show… CONTINUE READING
