Assessment of macro and microelement accumulation capability of two aquatic plants.
The concentrations of four macroelements (C, N, P, S) and eight trace metals (Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) were measured in the leaves and roots of the emergent plant, Phragmites communis Trin.,Expand

Wilson Disease Protein ATP7B Utilizes Lysosomal Exocytosis to Maintain Copper Homeostasis
Summary Copper is an essential yet toxic metal and its overload causes Wilson disease, a disorder due to mutations in copper transporter ATP7B. To remove excess copper into the bile, ATP7B trafficsExpand

Macro- and trace-element concentrations in leaves and roots of Phragmites australis in a volcanic lake in Southern Italy
Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, N, Ni, Pb, S, V and Zn concentrations were determined during a whole seasonal cycle in leaves and in water and sediment roots of the aquatic macrophyte Phragmites australisExpand

Ecological portrayal of old‐growth forests and persistent woodlands in the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park (southern Italy)
Abstract The maintenance of certain levels of old forest represents a cornerstone of the EU’s biodiversity management strategy. A consensus on a single general ecological definition of old‐growth isExpand

Trace metals in the soil and in Quercus ilex L. leaves at anthropic and remote sites of the Campania Region of Italy
The concentrations of Cd, Cr, Cu and Pb were measured in leaves of Quercus ilex L. and in the soils collected from 15 sites of the Campania Region of Italy of two different typologies (anthropic andExpand

Polymer functionalized nanocomposites for metals removal from water and wastewater: An overview.
Pollution by metal and metalloid ions is one of the most widespread environmental concerns. They are non-biodegradable, and, generally, present high water solubility facilitating their environmentalExpand

Temporal and spatial variation in C, N, S and trace element contents in the leaves of Quercus ilex within the urban area of Naples.
This paper presents a comparative analysis of the concentrations of C, N and S and several trace elements (Fe, Mn, Na, Zn, Cu, V, Pb, Ni, Cr, Cd) in leaves of Quercus ilex, an evergreen oak,Expand

Cadmium accumulation in leaves of leafy vegetables.
Leafy vegetables have a relatively high potential for Cd uptake and translocation, and are thus considered Cd accumulators. For this reason, leaves and roots of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) and endiveExpand

Total and available soil trace element concentrations in two Mediterranean agricultural systems treated with municipal waste compost or conventional mineral fertilizers.
The temporal dynamics of some trace elements in two different types of Mediterranean soils were studied in order to evaluate the possible long-term contamination following compost amendments. TotalExpand

Different behaviours in phytoremediation capacity of two heavy metal tolerant poplar clones in relation to iron and other trace elements.
Plant biodiversity and intra-population genetic variability have not yet been properly exploited in the framework of phytoremediation and soil reclamation. For this reason, iron and other metalExpand
