Potential for Phytoremediation of Polychlorinated Biphenyl-(PCB)-Contaminated Soil
Weathered soils contaminated with commercial-grade Aroclor 1260 from three sites in Canada were used to investigate the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) phytoextraction potential of nine plant speciesExpand

Uptake of weathered DDT in vascular plants: potential for phytoremediation.
Since the discovery of its insecticidal properties and its subsequent widespread use, DDT [2,2-bis(chlorophenyl)-1,1,1-trichloroethane] has accumulated in the environment, having a wide range ofExpand

The end of moai quarrying and its effect on Lake Rano Raraku, Easter Island
We reconstruct aspects of the history of Easter Island over the last 4-5 centuries based on the study of a core from Rano Raraku Lake, situated in the crater that contains the quarry of the island'sExpand

The use of biochar to reduce soil PCB bioavailability to Cucurbita pepo and Eisenia fetida.
Biochar is a carbon rich by-product produced from the thermal decomposition of organic matter under low oxygen concentrations. Currently many researchers are studying the ability of biochar toExpand

The effects of repeated planting, planting density, and specific transfer pathways on PCB uptake by Cucurbita pepo grown in field conditions.
An in situ field investigation into the potential of PCB phytoextraction by Cucurbita pepo ssp. pepo (pumpkin) plants was continued for a second year at a field site known to be contaminated with aExpand

Distribution and Autecology of Chrysophyte Cysts from High Arctic Svalbard Lakes: Preliminary Evidence of Recent Environmental Change
Chrysophycean stomatocyst assemblages were analysed from the sediments of 17 lakes and ponds from Svalbard as one component of a multi-proxy investigation of recent environmental change in the highExpand
