Abstract

It is common to use plant species to fight air pollution problem. It is common to use plant species to fight air pollution problem. This research was design to evaluate several tropical plant species with respect to its tolerance to polluted air condition in the city. Field observations were took place at Palembang City, South Sumatra, Indonesia. Research incorporated fifteen plant species grown at two different sites of Highly Polluted Air (HPA-site), and Non-Polluted Air (NPA-site), which consisted of 30 samples of mature plants per site. Quick measurement on the chlorophyll content were imposed on five mature leafs per sample. Research indicated that tropical plant species showed various responseresponses. With respect to the chlorophyll content, certainseveral plant species, such as Ficus sp, Hemigraphis sp, and Allamanda sp, showed no-significant reduction either they were grown at HPA-site or NPA-site.
