Earthworm bioturbation influences the phytoavailability of metals released by particles in cultivated soils.
The influence of earthworm activity on soil-to-plant metal transfer was studied by carrying out six weeks mesocosms experiments with or without lettuce and/or earthworms in soil with a gradient ofExpand
