  • Air pollution research report no. 46 : Effects of air pollution on agriculture crops in Europe : Results of the European open-top chambers project


This publication contains the contributions to the symposium on air pollution and crop responses in Europe held in Tervueren in November 1992. This was the final symposium of the European open-top chambers project which aimed to determine whether ambient concentrations of atmospheric pollutants have an influence on crop growth in rural areas. The papers presented discuss pollution climate, chamber design and exposure systems, responses of yield and quality, physiology and biochemistry, and biotic and abiotic interactions.
