Specifically particulate matter (PM) pollution represents a threat to both the environment and human health. In addition, Kumar and Thambavani (2012), and Prajapati and Tripathi (2008) found that dust deposition brings about a decreased transpiration rate and lower stomatal conductance along with a higher leaf temperature.

Biomonitoring and its Impact on Plants. Santosh Kumar Prajapati. Number of pages: 104. Published on: 2010-11-09. Vehicles emit cocktails of pollutants which pose serious threat to plants & humans. In present study the concentrations of SO2 and NO2, particulate matter (PM) were estimated. The presence of metals and PAHs in PM were biomonitored using plants.

It is well established that trees help to reduce air pollution, and there is a growing impetus for green belt expansion in urban areas. Identification of suitable plant species for green belts i.

The presence of metals and PAHs in PM were biomonitored using plants.

Vehicles emit cocktails of pollutants which pose serious threat to plants&humans. The study was performed to know whether presence of these pollutants in PM have any genotoxic effect or not and for this, the genotoxicity of urban air pollutants using Tradescantia pallida micronucleus bioassay was performed

Aquatic biomonitoring is the science of inferring the ecological condition of rivers, lakes, streams, and wetlands by examining the organisms that live there

Aquatic biomonitoring is the science of inferring the ecological condition of rivers, lakes, streams, and wetlands by examining the organisms that live there. While aquatic biomonitoring is the most common form of biomonitoring, any ecosystem can be studied in this manner. Biomonitoring typically takes different approaches: Bioassays, where test organisms are exposed to an environment to see if mutations or deaths occur. Typical organisms used in bioassays are fish, water fleas (Daphnia), and frogs.

Since plants are able to capture the road dust, they can also prevent the particulate pollution which is having adverse health impacts for humans. Keywords biomonitor; road dust; speciation; heavy metals. Vehicle derived particulates were monitored using magnetic properties of leaf dust and it has been established that they are particularly dangerous to human health (Prajapati et a. 2006).

Introduction Plants are considered as a good biological indicator of air pollution and thus, they are widely used in environmental studies. Plants leaves were proved to be good collector of PM1-4.

Vehicular pollution aroused due to rapid urbanization & industrialization. Vehicles emit cocktails of pollutants which pose serious threat to plants & humans. In present study the concentrations of SO2 and NO2, particulate matter (PM) were estimated. The presence of metals and PAHs in PM were biomonitored using plants. The study was performed to know whether presence of these pollutants in PM have any genotoxic effect or not and for this, the genotoxicity of urban air pollutants using Tradescantia pallida micronucleus bioassay was performed. In present study air pollution tolerance index (APTI) of different plant species were calculated. Taking into consideration of APTI and various biological and socio-economic characters of these plants species, anticipated performance index (API) were also calculated. The findings show that on the basis of API, plants can be suggested for green belt development in urban areas to ameliorated urban air pollution.
