Species-Pollutant Search

APIS provides information on potential impacts of air pollutants on species based on considering impacts on the habitat supporting the species. You can use the look up tool below to select a species and find out about the relevant critical loads for the supporting habitats and whether the species is sensitive to the pollutant via impacts on the supporting habitat.

APIS does not contain full records for the impacts of air pollutants on species as, for example, it does for habitats (link) and therefore, does not include a literature review of studies on species' response to air pollutants.

You can search for species records below. Species within the database are those that are protected as part of a designated site. The results page gives impacts for key atmospheric pollutants.
