About Håkan Pleijel

Research
My research is focused on the interaction between vegetation and the atmosphere. A large fraction of my work has been related to ground level-ozone – deposition, effects on vegetation and its distribution in the landscape near the Earth surface. This work has been used in the Air Pollution Convention LRTAP (Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution), where I have been active since 1987. I also conducted several investigations of the effect of elevated carbon dioxide on agricultural crops regarding growth and nutrient concentration. I also work with traffic related air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and particles as well as the effects of climate and climate change on air pollution. This part of my research also includes the importance of urban greenery for the city environment, partly by removing air pollutants, but also more generally by contributing to an improved local climate and a more attractive Environment.

Teaching
My teaching covers plant ecophysiology, air pollution, international environmental agreements as well as basic environmental science and ecology.

Other activities
I have been the author and/or editor of several books, mainly for teaching purposes. In addition, I have been working with design of environmental monitoring and evaluation of environmental objectives.

A complete list of scientific publications can be obtained through my ISI Researcher ID C-9724-2010 at the ISI web site.
