Leaf geometric design of urban trees: potentiality to capture airborne particle pollutants
The geometric features and particles burdens of the leaf of twenty-seven common tree species were studied. Three different tree categories including coniferous, broad and bisect leaf were recorded. These categories exhibited significant differences in their particle burdens of TDP, PM10 and PM2.5. The value of TDP appears to affect strongly by leaf macro-morphology such as leaf direction, flatness and hardness. ... إقراء المزيد
