Plant cuticle as a barrier to acid rain penetration.
Effects of atmospheric pollutants on forests, wetlands and agricultural ecosystems. Proc. Toronto, 1985
Exposure of leaf cells to acid precipitation is minimized by the presence of the plant cuticle, a waxy layer that covers the surface of leaves. Under most conditions direct effects of acidity on foliage are likely to be minor compared with the responses to gaseous pollutants. -from Author
