Ecology of SO2 resistance : V. effects of volcanic SO2 on native Hawaiian plants.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Plant species reflected SO2 -stress gradients that existed with increased distance from Hawaiian volcano vents which emit SO2 . These changes relate, in part at least, to species differences in stomatal responses to SO2 . The sensitive leaves do not close their stomata when exposed to elevated atmospheric SO2 concentrations.
