Abstract

Studies of photosynthetic capacity, chlorophyll a and b concentrations and leaf area, showed differences in the responses of two species of eucalyptus growing around an aluminum smelter. Eucalyptus punctata, which is believed to be sensitive to fluoride, showed reductions in all of these parameters which were significantly correlated with leaf fluoride content, fluoride in air and distance from the smelter. The same parameters in Eucalyptus fibrosa ssp. fibrosa, which is believed to be tolerant to fluoride, showed no significant differences between sites, except for leaf area.
