AIR POLLUTANTS AFFECTING THE PERFORMANCE OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS A Literature Review By EGBERT J. LILLIE, research poultry husbandman^ Animal Science Research Division Agriculture Handbook No. This review was supported in part by funds from the National Air Pollution Control Administration, Consumer Protection and Environmental Health Service. Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances are introduced into Earth's s of air pollution include gases (such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological may cause diseases, allergies and even death to humans; it may also cause.

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), sometimes known as "forever chemicals" are organic compounds that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes. Because of their persistence, POPs bioaccumulate with potential adverse impacts on human health and the effect of POPs on human and environmental health was discussed, with.

The links between air pollutants and health impacts are many and complex. The environmental health community is being challenged to take stronger mitigation to respect population health and is taking opportunities to further their implication. Recognizing, observing, and analyzing exposures are a promising way forward, but also raise a myriad of new challenges and questions, including what Cited by: 8. Sources of air pollutants can be divided into several types. These can be helpful in understanding the spatial and temporal distribution of source emissions, which has a large impact on exposures to emissions from different sources. Sources are commonly classified into three broad groups: primary, secondary, and re-emission sources.

The subject matter overlaps into a wide range of disciplines including agronomy, plant anatomy, biochemistry, cryptogamic botany, ecology, entomology, forestry, horticulture, landscape architecture, meteorology, microscopy, plant pathology, plant.

Numerous figures and tables illustrate the climates of major agricultural zones, giving a thorough knowledge of which crop species and production systems are effective in different climates. The book concludes with an analysis illustrating the relevance of crop responses to environment to plant by: During latethe Research Management Committee (RMC) of the National Crop Loss Assessment Network (NCLAN) decided the most ap­ propriate way to bring the NCLAN program to a successful conclusion was to hold an international conference.

Effects of Gaseous Air Pollution in Agriculture and Horticulture focuses on the impact of air pollution on agriculture and horticulture. This book discusses the existence of significant concentrations of gaseous pollutants in several agricultural regions of industrialized countries, which is facilitated by improved instrumentation and monitoring networks.

Abstract. In this impact category there are several European studies 1 which have established dose-response functions for the effect of air pollutants on crops.

We do not discuss them in detail here but refer the reader to the individual country studies. The role of the agricultural scientist is to manipulate crop and livestock response phenomena so that they serve society's needs better, enabling countries to obtain full benefit from their agricultural resources.

By producing food more efficiently, resources can be made available for non-agricultural development and other needs beyond the essentials of food and fibre.
