When Moss Reflects Air Pollution
Despite the increasing research into and recognition of the role of particulate matter in the excess mortality caused by air pollution, it is still poorly understood. A research team used an innovative method based on the biomonitoring of metal levels in mosses in rural France. Their findings point to a link between long-term exposure to atmospheric metals and excess mortality, even in areas remote from major sources of emissions.
