- We captured no evidence for the effects on shrublands of adding lime to reduce the impacts of sulphur dioxide pollution.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Acid rain associated with sulphur dioxide pollution can damage plants and influence the habitat suitability for shrubland communities. Lime can be added to increase the capacity of the soil to retain a stable pH.
