Susceptibility of shrubs to accumulation of airborne microdust
Summary.

The adverse effect of air pollution on the well-being, health and human life has been confirmed in a number of medical publications. One of the most dangerous pollutants inhaled by humans are particular matters – PM. If pollution has been emitted to the atmosphere the only possible alternative to clean up the air is environmental biotechnology – phytoremediation. It is based in cultivation of plants, which works as a biological filter, by accumulating particles on both leaf and root surfaces. The research on selecting the most effective species/varieties in PM accumulation has been rarely represented in literature so far. In this study, sixteen species of shrubs and three species of climbers, recommended for planting in urban areas, were evaluated for their ability to accumulate PM on leaves. Among the tested species of plants both Eleagnus angustifolia and Taxus baccata possessed the highest ability to accumulate PM while the lowest was found in Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’.
