Keywords: air pollution | birch | horse chestnut | percentage of stomata

The aim of this paper is the determination of air pollution influence on the percentage of stomata in tested woody species, horse chestnut and birch, under examined Banja Luka air pollution conditions. Two locations in Banja Luka town were examined, with different air pollution degrees: the first location is a hostel for students, with the minimal or absent air pollution; the second location is the west transit, with high air pollution due to a high number of motor cars which pass by the west transit. The air pollution difference between these two locations is very marked, and the objective of the examination was to assess how the indicated locations, which have different life conditions for the tested woody species, impact the physiological processes such as transpiration and photosynthesis. The study species react differently when the percentage of stomata and air pollution are compared.
