Plants are important bio-indicators for environmental pollution. This study was conducted to assess trees as indicators of environmental pollution near Bahrain oil refinery. Four tree species were located near the refinery were used in this study; Neem ( Azadirachta indica ), Nerium oleander , Phoenix dactylifera (Date palm) and Conocarpus erectus . The same set of trees, located near Arabian Gulf University were used as control. Leaf samples were collected monthly from the trees and analyzed… Expand

TLDR
Even though SO2 levels were lower than the permissible limit values, the sulphate contents accumulated in the plants were likely to cause plant injury especially in the vicinity of the source, suggesting that the present environmental guidelines for SO2 may not protect sensitive plant species.
