Distribution and Metal-Accumulating Behavior of Thlaspi caerulescens and Associated Metallophytes in France
ABSTRACT The heavy metal hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens is widespread in France on many kinds of sites and substrates, including Zn/Pb/Cd mine and smelter wastes, Ni-rich serpentine outcropsExpand

Phytoextraction of cadmium with Thlaspi caerulescens
The in situ phytoextraction of cadmium from soils can only be achieved using plants that are both tolerant to high Cd concentrations and able to extract sufficient amounts of the metal. However, veryExpand

Hyperaccumulation of Metals by Thlaspi caerulescens as Affected by Root Development and Cd–Zn/Ca–Mg Interactions
ABSTRACT The aim of this work was to study, in a rhizobox experiment, the phytoextraction of metals by the hyperaccumulator plant Thlaspi caerulescens in relation to the heterogeneity of metalExpand

Root development of the Zinc-hyperaccumulator plant Thlaspi caerulescens as affected by metal origin, content and localization in soil
Penetration into and exploitation of contaminated soils by roots of hyperaccumulator plants is a prerequisite for efficient removal of heavy metals, i.e. efficacy of phytoextraction. This work wasExpand

Distribution of cadmium and zinc in the hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens grown on multicontaminated soil
Phytoextraction of Cd by some populations of Thlaspi caerulescens which have the ability to co-hyperaccumulate Cd and Zn requires information about the distribution of both metals within the plant atExpand

Heavy metal contamination from mining sites in South Morocco: 1. Use of a biotest to assess metal toxicity of tailings and soils.
Our work was conducted to investigate the heavy metal toxicity of tailings and soils collected from five metal mines located in the south of Morocco. We used the MetPAD biotest Kit which detects theExpand

Assessment and control of the bioavailability of nickel in soils.
Nickel, a potentially toxic metal, is present in all soils with an average concentration of 20 to 30 mg/kg, sometimes exceeding 10,000 mg/kg (e.g., ultramafic soils). The ecotoxicological risk of NiExpand
