The present study explores the use of micromorphological leaf epidermal characters of Ficus benjamina (evergreen) and Fraxinus pennsylvanica (deciduous) as indicators of pollution in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires. Mature leaves of both species were sampled along an urbanperiurban gradient, with a rural area as control for epidermal characters. Parameters examined from abaxial and upper epidermis were: (1) length and width of stomata, (2) number of stomata per area unit, (3) length and… Expand
Environmental Pollution Bioindication Based on Ficus benjamina L. Leaf Reflectance in the City of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire
The air in African cities is increasingly polluted mainly due to human activities. A bioindication technical of urban air quality based on active remote sensing might be an alternative to existingExpand
OF THE MORPHOLOGICAL TRAITS OF ELM ( ULMUS MINOR ‘ UMBRACULIFERA ’ ) LEAVES TO AIR POLLUTION IN URBAN AREAS ( A CASE STUDY OF TEHRAN METROPOLITAN CITY , IRAN )
In this study, changes in the morphological traits of the leaves of elm tree (Ulmus minor ‘Umbraculifera’) were investigated against the air pollution in Tehran City, capital of Iran. For thisExpand
Traffic effects on leaf macro- and micro-morphological traits
TLDR
The results of this research show that the air pollution stress impacted the tree morphological traits and from the two species, F. rotundifolia was more resistant in terms of pollution stress. Expand

Efecto de la contaminación ambiental en la anatomía de la hoja de Ligustrum lucidum (Oleaceae)
TLDR
Results show that in the polluted areas, the frequency of stomas, trichomes and stomatic index of the leaf are higher than in not polluted areas; and a reduction in palisade parenchyma thickness respect to the spongy one in the mesophyll is observed in polluted leaf. Expand
Análise estrutural de folhas de Eugenia uniflora L. (Myrtaceae) coletadas em ambientes rural e urbano, SP, Brasil
TLDR
Leaf size, tissue thickness, and stomatal and crystal density of E. uniflora growing at two sites in the city of Sao Paulo were investigated by light microscopy and compared with samples from a rural area, and leaves showed similarities, but were different from rural leaves. Expand
Effect of cadmium on growth, ultramorphology of leaf and secondary metabolites of Phyllanthus amarus Schum. and Thonn.
TLDR
The study revealed that Cd causes significant decrease in fresh and dry weight, length of root and shoot, protein, chlorophyll, carotenoids and sugar and increase in starch content in Phyllanthus amarus Schum. Expand

Atmospheric quality and distribution of heavy metals in Argentina employing Tillandsia capillaris as a biomonitor.
TLDR
The foliar damage index distribution map showed that the central and southeastern zones were the ones where the major damage in the bioindicator was found, and it can be inferred that Fe, Mn and Co probably originated in the soil. Expand

On the use of the lichen Ramalina celastri (Spreng.) Krog. & Swinsc. as an indicator of atmospheric pollution in the province of Córdoba, Argentina, considering both lichen physiological parameters and element concentrations
The lichen Ramalina celastri (Spreng.) Krog. & Swinsc. was used to study trace-element atmospheric pollution in Córdoba (Argentina). 38 samples from a 1999 campaign were analyzed by NAA and a numberExpand
Effect of railway engines emission on the micromorphology of some field plants.
TLDR
The present studies revealed that diesel engines emission caused appreciable changes in the number of epidermal cells and stomata per unit area in Croton bonplandianum, Cannabis sativa and Calotropis procera. Expand
