The phytotoxic effects of ozone and mesophyll-feeding leafhoppers were contrasted microscopically and histologically on leaves of Acer saccharum Marsh., Quercus rubra L., and Cornus florida L. Injuries induced by the two agents were readily distinguished by the differences in location, configuration, color, and size of the external symptoms, and by the characteristics of affected palisade parenchyma cells.
