Acute Toxicology of Components of Vegetation Smoke

  • Frank N. Dost
Part of the Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology book series (RECT, volume 119)


In spite of generations of experience, the basis for respiratory and eye irritation caused by vegetation smoke is not adequately understood. Increasing concern about the long- and short-term health consequences of residential, agricultural, and forestry burning is stimulating greater interest in examining the knowledge that does exist and in designing research that will answer some of the more important questions. This review is a study of existing literature that relates to acute effects of smoke arising from combustion of vegetation.
