Abstract: Abstract Air pollution has been aggravated by developments that typically occur as countries become industrialized: growing cities, increasing traffic, rapid economic development and industrialization, and higher energy consumption. The development of sustainable and cost effective technologies for air pollution abatement is one of the promising areas of research. The quest of an alternative eco-friendly technology relating to restoration of urban ecosystem has resulted in the study of influence of air pollutants on plants as an integral part of pollution ecology. Although, review relating to use of plant species in controlling air pollution have been carried, but extensive review on the use of anatomical, morphological, physiological and biochemical parameters of plants of urban forest as biomarkers of air pollution has not been done. The objective of this paper is to review the responses of plants to air pollution.
