Default How does air pollution affect photosynthesis? - 02-09-2011, 05:21 AM

I need this as quick as possible... Can any one tell me a detailed but not textbook-ed situation or example of how air pollution affects photosynthesis and how it affects photosynthesis in plants?

Due to air pollution smog occur which block the sunlight which is essential for photosynthesis and it effect the chemical reaction in plants.Air pollution also cause acid rain which also effect photosynthesis.

Agree with averill.sometime air come from the sky with very dangerous acids and it will become a causes of destroy the photosynthesis.

Hi,

Pollution in whatever form has negative impacts on the environment and the plants that reside in it. Pollution has many sources, from direct discharge of waste oil into waterways to air pollution from automobile exhaust. Some effects are short term and easily mitigated. Other effects are long term, with pollutants persisting in the environment or accumulating in plant tissues. Photosynthesis is an essential process within the ecosystem. Using sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, plants manufacture food and energy in a chemical process which occurs in plant leaves.

Thanks,

Well, smog can block out light that is needed for photosynthesis. I bet it also messes with the chemical reaction the plant goes through converting CO2 to sugars and oxygen.
Air pollution sometimes comes out of the sky with the rain as "acid rain." This harms the leaves of a plant, which reduces how well it can conduct photosynthesis.

Exactly.......Although air pollution effects badly plants through various routes, one of them is photosynthesis. Increase in air pollution leads to smog, because of this heavy smog plants are unable to get efficient amount of sunlight causing less production of carbohydrates....in turn disturbing the process of photosynthesis! Again global warming increased due to air pollution causing ill effects on plant..
Hope its sufficient!!
