How does acid rain affect water soil and plants?
Acid rain is thought to be acidifying soils and freshwaters, dissolving and releasing aluminum in concentrations toxic to fish and plants. Acid rain is also thought to be leaching nutrients from soils, thereby lowering their fertility.
Does acid rain stress plants?
Acid rain, as an abiotic stress, has devastating effects on all plants: it strips the protective wax from leaves, allowing leaves to desiccate and die (Percy and Baker 1990). Acid rain also induces changes in the cellular biochemistry and physiology of the whole plant.
What are harmful effects of acid rain?
Acid rain can be extremely harmful to forests. Acid rain that seeps into the ground can dissolve nutrients, such as magnesium and calcium, that trees need to be healthy. Acid rain also causes aluminum to be released into the soil, which makes it difficult for trees to take up water.
