ABSTRACT
The article presents a study of the effect of limestone quarry dust on the photosynthetic characteristics of evergreen schlerophyllous shrub (Quercus coccifera). The study uses infrared gas analyser (IRGA) to measure the photosynthesis and stomatal conductance of Q. coccifera and Plant Stress Meter to measure chlorophyll fluorescence parameters. Results suggest that the deposition of limestone dust to leaves of Q. coccifera was damaging to photosynthesis.
