NY418 & NY225 – Pollution

While building designers, owners and managers would agree that indoor plants and interior landscaping contribute to environmental quality, there has been relatively little scientific research carried out on either people/plant relationships, or the effects on the plants themselves of life in the indoor environment. This current study aims to investigate the stress responses of selected indoor plant varieties induced by standard air conditioned office environments, and hence to assess he feasibility of deriving a stress tolerance index for the species examined.
