Abstract

The leaves of a facade climbing Japanese Creeper (Parthenocissus tricuspidata) in the urban city center of Düsseldorf (Germany) were investigated concerning their composition of macro- and micronutritiants and different pollutants. Using a leaf cleaning technique with a polyvinyl-butyrale varnish it is possible to distinguish the substantial leaf share from deposited material. Finally the filtering aspect for airborne pollutants is quantified. The comparison of the particle mass deposition of several cities shows the relavance and also the potential of vertical greening as an element of nature in postmodern urban development. - (HPB)
