Abstract:

A study was conducted for the assessment of biochemical change on effect of air pollution of selective plant species around an industrial/ urban area Durgapur, India. Three biochemical parameters such as ascorbic acid, pH and total chlorophyll and one physiological parameter like relative water content (RWC) of eight different plant leaves were analyzed at two different regions of Durgapur Industrial belt. Ambient air quality (SOx, NOx and SPM) were also analyzed to evaluate the surrounding air pollution at each site. This study indicated that, plants can change their inert physio- biochemical mechanisms to withstand themselves in a more polluted environment, though it is not the property of all species of plants, only the tolerant one can do this. In the stressful environment the early diagnosis of plant species is the analysis of biochemical parameters rather than the detection of morphological anomaly which is late stage manifestation of plant life.


Keywords: Air pollution, ascorbic acid, pH, total chlorophyll, relative water content, urban, Durgapur, India.
