Acid earth: the global threat of acid pollution


, : Acid earth: the global threat of acid pollution. Acid earth: the global threat of acid pollution: 191

This book considers firstly the causes of acid pollution. It then deals at greater length with the part played by emissions in the atmosphere, the extent of the emissions from different countries and the widespread and diverse evidence of acid damage in the environment. Means of reducing acid pollution and some ways of controlling it are described. A number of international issues are examined, and the situation with regard to pollution in various regions of the world viz.

Distal axonopathy induced by n-hexane and methyl n-butyl ketone has been attributed to a common metabolite, 2,5-hexanedione. Since altered lipid metabolism is frequently associated with neuropathy, the effects of 2,5-hexanedione on lipid biosynthe...

Giza 69 grown during 1978-9 was sprayed with 0, 100, 200 or 400 p.p.m. Cycocel [chlormequat] at 90, 105, 120 or 135 days from sowing. Cycocel application increased seed yield although time of application had little effect. The highest s...
