Urban Ornamental Plants: Sensitivity to Ozone and Potential Economic Losses.
A substantial amount of analysis has been conducted to ascertain the potential health and welfare losses associated with elevated concentrations of ozone.The analysis of welfare effects has focused primarily on potential economic losses for materials damage, reductions in yields of agricultural crops, and reductions in growth rates of trees of commercial importance. One remaining potentially significant area of welfare loss associated with ozone is damage to urban ornamental plants. These are plants used in the urban (and suburban) landscape, such as grass, flowers, shrubs, and trees.
