QUIZ – 2017: Insights Current Affairs Quiz



Mosses have been used for decades to monitor air quality. 
• Mosses lack a root system, so they rely on deposition from the atmosphere for their mineral nutrition. They are especially well-suited for air-quality assessment as they are very effective at trapping pollutants, both particulate and gaseous. 
• Traditional air-pollution measurement systems require a range of detectors to measure the presence of different pollutants. However, moss simply retains all the different pollutants within its structure, so it is easily processed to measure their presence. The absorption process itself is also a passive one – it needs no electricity supply or complex equipment to function.
