    Introduction There are many ways in which air quality is defined. This is normally based on the impact that a pollutant or mixture of pollutants might have on aspects such as human health, visibility, crop damage, damage to the stratospheric ozone layer or acid erosion of buildings. Conference Title: Genetic effects of air pollutants in forest tree populations. Proceedings of the joint meeting of the IUFRO working parties Genetic Aspects of Air Pollution, Population and Ecological Genetics, Biochemical Genetics, held in Grosshansdorf [German Federal Republic], August , This document serves to assists health professionals (especially the primary care physician) in diagnosis of patient symptoms that could be related to an indoor air pollution problem.

When developing the AQHI, Health Canada's original analysis of health effects included five major air pollutants: particulates, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), as well as sulfur dioxide (SO 2), and carbon monoxide (CO).

The latter two pollutants provided little information in predicting health effects and were removed from the AQHI formulation. Historical perspective.

Shoji Takeno, Chairman. Although PM 10 may be a good indicator, there is clear evidence that other pollutants, such as ozone, NO x, and SO 2, have independent health effects. In addition, we did not include synergistic effects among air pollutants or with cofactors, such as pollen and other allergens.

Second, the ATMOS model we used could only deal with primary PM The effects of pollutants may result in an increase in the total popula- tion of microorganisms, or of certain specific groups, or may suppress bac- teria processes.

In the USA, based on the articles available to us, only one work (Duthrie et_ jil_., ) is similar in methodology to works in the USSR: ex- periments to determine the effect of. Often, people are exposed to several air pollutants at the same time. The health effects from such mixtures are not well understood, but could produce synergistic effects.
