Accumulators and excluders ‐strategies in the response of plants to heavy metals
- A. J. Baker
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 result… Expand

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 the… Expand
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 immobilization… Expand
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, Thlaspi… Expand
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 Cd… Expand

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, a… Expand
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 south… Expand
