Plants react more sensitively to air pollutants because they use the carbon in the air for their nutrition. The amount of carbon in the air is .035%, so the plant must take in a lot of air to fill their nutrient needs. By comparison, the oxygen which humans and animals utilize makes up approximately 21% of the atmosphere. We do not require as much aeration and thus take in less of the ambient toxic pollutants.
