The study aims to assess the identification of the specific species of plants for selection of certain plant
species and utilization of selected one’s in experimental biomonitoring studies.The purpose of the proposed
study was to develop and apply new techniques, methods and methodologies for air quality assessing in the
context of climate change and updating of international environmental studys. The novelty of the active
biomonitoring method using plants is an innovative research area for the National Research and Development
Institute for Industrial Ecology in terms of the use of sentinel species. The first stage research activity was
aimed to identify plant species with specific response to certain environmental pollutants, in our case,
ozone. By exposing higher plants (from the Solanaceae family) to various environmental conditions, a direct
impact measurement of ground-level ozone was considered - as an indicator of environmental pollution
(air) - there was a significant difference relationship between soil level ozone variation and foliar necrosis.
