From page 105...
... The National Park Service has used biomarkers such as milkweed and eastern white pine to survey for air pollution injury in southeastern National Parks since 1983. In 1986, a survey was made of the Piedmont of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, using existing biomarkers such as cherry.
From page 106...
... This normally means that the surveys have to be conducted from mid-July until the start of fall colors. In spite of the limitations, biomarkers have been used for a number of years in the southeastern United States to assess air pollution incidence.
From page 107...
... Trees with ozone symptoms had 49% less volume than symptom-free trees. In 1985, the Southeastern Forest Experiment Station reported a growth loss in loblolly pine in the Piedmont of Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
