Abstract
Recent decades have seen an increase in air pollution as a result of increased manufacturing and urbanisation. Particulate matter poses a serious threat to human health and the environment. Plants' general physiology may be severely harmed by both particle and gaseous contaminants. Because of their enduring nature, trees are subject to the most pollution and have the biggest impact. Air pollution has become a serious issue throughout the globe in the contemporary world due to car emissions, fast industrialisation, agricultural practises, and other factors. Pollutants in the air may be controlled by plants, since they can withstand them. A considerable number of thermal power plants are being built by the public and private sectors in order to fulfil the rising demand for energy from industry, agriculture, and home requirements. The pollutants emitted by these power plants are quite diverse. Eleven commonly cultivated plant species near the Neyveli Lignite Corporation Limited (NLC) region were studied for their Air Pollution Tolerance Index significance as a means of determining the sensitivity level of plants to air pollution.
