The biological effects of atmospheric pollution, of course, arenot confined to forest ecosystems, and monitaring prograrnmes have also been established to examine their impact on, for instance, wetlands and agricultural ecosystems (Hutchinson and Meema, 1987). These are just a few of the many biomonitaring programmes that have recently been established to examine the nature and consequences of pollution and general environmental change. Other monitaring programmes have been initiated in order to examine changes in the distribution and status of particular biotic groups, including birds (Sauer and Droege, 1990).
