Plant Detective: Missouri S&T Professor Studies Plants as “Bio-Sentinels” of Indoor Pollution

Missouri University of Science and Technology

Behold the common house plant, the front-yard shrub, the rhododendron around back that’s seen better days since the next-door neighbors put their home on the market.They brighten our lawns, increase our property values, even boost our mental and physical health by reducing carbon dioxide levels.For Dr. Joel Burken at Missouri University of Science and Technology, such plants are far more valuable than as mere window dressing.
