To assess the toxicity of a soil contaminated with landfill leachate, biomarker measurements in two species living in close contact with the soil, i.e. a plant species Trifolium repens and an animal species Eisenia fetida, were conducted. Briefly, both species were studied after simultaneous exposure conducted in microcosms. The organisms were exposed to soil supplemented with pure leachate, leachate diluted to 50%; leachate diluted to 25% and without leachate. After a 10 weeks exposure period… CONTINUE READING
