Abstract

It is known that vegetation can filter out dust, shoot, smoke and much other fine particulate matter present in air by process of absorption, detoxification, accumulation or metabolization. The tree species possessing higher dust escaping capacity has higher chances of survival in the polluted areas. The study indicated that evergreen plants with simple, rough, hairy and fast growing trees are good dust arrestors. The study suggested a systematic way of selecting plant species on the basis of their efficiency in dust control. © Enviromedia.
