FFECT OF DUST FALL OF MARBLE INDUSTRIES ON VEGETATION OF DANTA TALUKA A.H. GAMI* AND N.K. PATEL SHETH M. N. SCIENCE COLLEGE, PATAN, GUJARAT, INDIA. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The paper describes the effect of marble dust on plants in and around areas Danta, Dist Banaskantha. Trees species growing in and around areas of Danta were selected and various morphological characteristics were studied such as Measuring Air Pollution Tolerance Index in various seasons of various sites. In the study the effects of marble dust on selected tree species was observed.
KEY WORD: Air Pollution Tolerance Index, Ascorbic acid, Ecological model, APTI value, Economic value, Tolerance.
