Contribution to the knowledge of air pollution effects on Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E. globulus (Myrtaceae) leaves -.This study deals with the metal storage found in Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E. globulus leaf structures. The cytological and chemical analysis were carried out on samples from the city of Agrigento and its surroundings. The investigation pointed out that the the most evident alterations are phenolic storage and distinctive cellular modification. These features appear related to the greater presence of trace elements within the sites that are more exposed to intense vehicular traffic. Winter samples, moreover, have more evident structural modifications due to a bigger concentration of polluting agents compared to summer.

Abstract

Contribution to the knowledge of air pollution effects on Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E. globulus (Myrtaceae) leaves -.This study deals with the metal storage found in Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E. globulus leaf structures. The cytological and chemical analysis were carried out on samples from the city of Agrigento and its surroundings. The investigation pointed out that the the most evident alterations are phenolic storage and distinctive cellular modification. These features appear related to the greater presence of trace elements within the sites that are more exposed to intense vehicular traffic. Winter samples, moreover, have more evident structural modifications due to a bigger concentration of polluting agents compared to summer.
