Accumulators and excluders ‐strategies in the response of plants to heavy metals
Abstract Plants colonizing metalliferous soils have evolved physiological mechanisms which enable them to tolerate metal toxicity. These mechanisms do not generally suppress metal uptake but resultExpand

Phytoremediation of soil metals.
The phytoremediation of metal-contaminated soils offers a low-cost method for soil remediation and some extracted metals may be recycled for value. Both the phytoextraction of metals and theExpand

The possibility of in situ heavy metal decontamination of polluted soils using crops of metal-accumulating plants
The decontamination of soils and wastes polluted with heavy metals presents one of the most intractable problems for soil clean-up. Present technology relies upon metal extraction or immobilizationExpand

Phytoremediation Potential of Thlaspi caerulescens and Bladder Campion for Zinc- and Cadmium-Contaminated Soil
Metal-tolerant hyperaccumulator plants may be useful to phytoremediate contaminated soils. To evaluate agronomic management practices to maximize phytoremediation, two metallophytes, ThlaspiExpand

Zinc and cadmium uptake by hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens grown in nutrient solution
Phytoremediation of heavy-metal-contaminated soils can be an inexpensive means to remove hazardous metals from soil. Two metallophytes, Thlaspi caerulescens (J. & C. Presl, a Zn and CdExpand

Facultative hyperaccumulation of heavy metals and metalloids.
Approximately 500 species of plants are known to hyperaccumulate heavy metals and metalloids. The majority are obligate metallophytes, species that are restricted to metalliferous soils. However, aExpand

Heavy metal accumulation and tolerance in British populations of the metallophyte Thlaspi caerulescens J. & C. Presl (Brassicaceae)
SUMMARY Heavy metai uptake, accumulation and tolerance were investigated in five British populations of the metallophyte Thlaspi caerulescens from metalliferous sites from the north and southExpand

There are very few practical demonstrations of the phytoextraction of metals and metalloids from soils and sediments beyond small-scale and short-term trials. The two approaches used have been basedExpand
