ABSTRACT:
Air pollution in India is a serious issue with the major sources being fuel wood and biomass burning, fuel adulteration, vehicle emission and traffic congestion. To develop the importance of herbal plants as bioindicators requires appropriated selection of herbal tree and plant species which is at most important in the current scenario. So, we preferred to study the APTI of plants located at Government college of Engineering .It is situated on the Bangalore National Highways (NH-47),6 km from the Salem city. The aim of this study is therefore to determine the APTI of medicinal plants in the Government College of Engineering Campus. Salem, Tamil Nadu, India. From the results of our study, it is known that Bambusa Bambos, Borassus flabellifer, Mangifera indica, Acacia Arabica, Albizia amara was found to have high air pollution tolerance index value and Spathodea campanulata, Magifera caesia having low APTI value as a sensitive plant.
