SO2, O3 and NO2 are strong oxidants and can bring about significant changes in plant cell chemistry. The general effects of pollutants are as follows:

  • Inhibition of photosynthesis,
  • Reduced nutrient uptake,
  • Leaching of plant nutrients in soil,
  • Release of poisonous metal ions that are normally bound to the soil and
  • Killing of essential microorganisms in the soil.
