Phytostabilization of Zn-Pb ore flotation tailings with Dianthus carthusianorum and Biscutella laevigata after amending with mineral fertilizers or sewage sludge.
Zinc-lead mining wastes remain largely unvegetated and prone to erosion for many years because of phytotoxic levels of residual heavy metals, low nutrient status and poor physical structure. TheExpand

Comparative Assessment of Response to Cadmium in Heavy Metal-Tolerant Shrubs Cultured In Vitro
Two species of Pb-adapted shrubs, Alyssum montanum and Daphne jasminea, were evaluated in vitro for their tolerance to elevated concentrations of cadmium. Shoot cultures were treated with 0.5, 2.5,Expand

The acclimatization strategies of kidney vetch (Anthyllis vulneraria L.) to Pb toxicity
Kidney vetch (Anthyllis vulneraria L.) is a well-known Zn hyperaccumulator. Zn often occurs with Pb in one ore; thus, plants inhabiting waste dumps are exposed not only to Zn but also to Pb toxicity.Expand

Changes in proteolytic activity and protein carbonylation in shoots of Alyssum montanum ecotypes under multi-metal stress.
The aim of present study was to evaluate the proteolytic response of metallicolous (M) and nonmetallicolous (NM) ecotypes of Alyssum montanum under heavy metals (HMs) stress. Therefore, shootExpand
