THIS IS A MORO- ANATOMICAL study where Ficus nitida tree leaves from dust-affected street are compared with those of control from a pollution free site. Under the impact of dust particles, leaf sizes and specific leaf area are significantly smaller and stomatal density differs. Under pollution circumstances, visual symptoms including chlorosis /yellowish and dark spots on the adaxial surface of the polluted leaves were observed. Thick cuticle, collapsed epidermis, large cystolith, dark phenolic deposits in the spongy parenchyma, relatively thick walls of xylem vessels and slightly alterations in the phloem cells were the anatomical features of the polluted leaves. The degree of these changes varied according to the variations in the intercepted dust mass, the issue which can be use for biomonitoring of air pollution.
