The goals of this study were to document the development of ozone-induced foliar injury, on a leaf-by-leaf basis, and to develop ozone exposure relationships for leaf cohorts and individual tall milkweeds (Asclepias exaltata L.) in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Plants were classified as either ozone-sensitive or insensitive based on the amount of foliar injury. Sensitive plants developed injury earlier in the season and to a greater extent than insensitive plants. Older leaf cohorts were… Expand
Temporal patterns of foliar ozone symptoms on tall milkweed (Asclepias exaltata L.) in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
TLDR
Regression analyses indicated no differentiation in foliar symptoms regarding topographic position, aspect, slope or elevation over the 5-year study period, indicating other micro-site or genetic factors may control ozone sensitivity of tall milkweed in GRSM. Expand
Comparative ozone responses of cutleaf coneflowers (Rudbeckia laciniata var. digitata, var. ampla) from Rocky Mountain and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks, USA.
TLDR
Cutleaf coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata L. digitata) and Variety ampla are native to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and an ozone bioindicator species and if ozone concentrations increase in the Rocky Mountains, greater amounts of injury on var. Expand
Ambient ozone effects on gas exchange and total non-structural carbohydrate levels in cutleaf coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata L.) growing in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
TLDR
The results show that ambient levels of ozone in Great Smoky Mountains National Park can adversely affect gas exchange, water use efficiency and leaf starch content in sensitive coneflower plants. Expand
Stomatal behavior of ozone-sensitive and -insensitive coneflowers (Rudbeckia laciniata var. digitata) in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
TLDR
Stomata of sensitive plants were less responsive than those of insensitive plants to experimentally increased and decreased light intensities, and to increased VPD, while O(3)-insensitive plants had greater intrinsic transpirational efficiencies, greater maximum assimilation rates under saturating CO(2) and light, and greater carboxylation rates. Expand
Seasonal profiles of leaf ascorbic acid content and redox state in ozone-sensitive wildflowers.
TLDR
Different differences in antioxidant metabolism were found in the wildflower species that corresponded with differences in ozone sensitivity, and identified antioxidant compounds were present in the leaf apoplast of all three species. Expand
A Review: Effect of Ozone on Milkweeds (Asclepias spp.) in USA and Potential Implications for Monarch Butterflies
TLDR
This review discusses sources, concentrations, and dispersion of the air pollutant ozone in the U.S.; the time frame for the historical development of ozone-sensitive bioindicator plants; and the lack of data regarding ozone-sensitivity among milkweed species in theU.S. Expand
Ozone affects gas exchange, growth and reproductive development in Brassica campestris (Wisconsin fast plants).
TLDR
The observation that mature seed yield per plant was unaffected by exposure during the vegetative phase, despite adverse effects on physiological, vegetative and reproductive processes, shows that indeterminate species such as B. campestris possess sufficient compensatory flexibility to avoid reductions in seed production.

Ozone risk and foliar injury on Viburnum lantana L.: a meso-scale epidemiological study.
TLDR
It is suggested that V. lantana is a suitable indicator for assessing qualitatively (but not quantitatively) the potential risk of ozone damage to vegetation over remote, large areas. Expand
Ozone-Sensitivity of Ten Milkweed Species (Asclepias spp.)
TLDR
Asclepias syriaca (Common Milkweed) developed the greatest level of ozone-induced leaf injury (“stipple”) in both studies, and all milkweed species exposed to ozone in chambers within a greenhouse during 2018 and 2019 were tolerant. Expand
Assessment of six Indian cultivars of mung bean against ozone by using foliar injury index and changes in carbon assimilation, gas exchange, chlorophyll fluorescence and photosynthetic pigments
TLDR
Six Indian cultivars of Vigna radiata L. were exposed with ambient and elevated ozone level and showed visible foliar symptoms due to O3, which significantly depressed total chlorophyll, photosynthetic rate, quantum yield, Fv/Fm and total biomass although the extent of variation was cultivar specific.

Evaluation of ozone injury on foliage of black cherry (Prunus serotina) and tall milkweed (Asclepias exaltata) in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
TLDR
It is indicated that ozone injury is widespread throughout the Park on sensitive vegetation and has increased over time, and mean leaf area injured increased from 8 to 11% during the same period. Expand
Effects of ambient ozone on seedlings of Fagus sylvatica L. and Picea abies (L.) Karst.
TLDR
Tests with low temperatures suggest that the vitality of the spruce seedlings during winter may also be impaired by the ambient air pollution, and laboratory experiments suggest that winter desiccation may have played a more important role than low temperatures. Expand
Temporal development of visual ozone injury on the foliage of Prunus serotina—a statistical evaluation
TLDR
This paper assesses whether, overall, an increasing trend in the injury levels, as given by the values of Y, was evident and estimated the probability F(t) that the first sign of injury might occur after a given number of weeks. Expand
Observations of ozone-induced foliar injury on black cherry (Prunus serotina, var. capuli) within the Desierto de Los Leones National Park, Mexico City.
TLDR
A survey for ozone-induced foliar injury of black cherry was conducted in mid-June 1995 within the Desierto de Los Leones National Park located southwest of Mexico City and revealed evidence of significant upper surface stipple, leaf reddening and premature senescence on 72% of the trees. Expand
Foliar response of black cherry (Prunus serotina) clones to ambient ozone exposure in central Pennsylvania.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that wild genotypes of proximal geographic origin may differ greatly in sensitivity to ozone-induced foliar injury in black cherry trees growing in the Allegheny National Forest and Monongahela National Forest. Expand
Ozone exposure thresholds and foliar injury on forest plants in Switzerland.
TLDR
The current European ambient ozone standard may be insufficient to protect native plant species from visible foliar injuries, and many more native species may be sensitive to ozone-induced foliar injury than are currently known. Expand
Growth responses and foliar sensitivities of native herbaceous species to ozone exposures
TLDR
Of all species tested, Malva sylvestris was found to be the most sensitive in terms of growth reduction and lower seed production, and O3 caused premature leaf senescence, which was sometimes associated with premature leaf abscission. Expand

TLDR
This is the first report of foliar ozone injury on these plant species in situ, in the Park, illustrating the great variability in symptom expression with time, and within and between populations. Expand
