Abstract

In the present work pine (pinus sylvestris) needles were used as passive samplers for biomonitoring PAHs presence in Milan urban area. Previous studies used this kind of plant for environmental monitoring and showed that the epicuticular waxy layer of pine needles accumulates organic contaminants from surrounding air. In addition conifer leaves are characterized by a long lifetime, thus their study allowed us to work with PAH concentrations integrated over a long period of time, irrespective of atmospheric conditions. In addition pinus sylvestris is widely distributed in the Milan urban area.
