  • Phragmites australis, Puccinnellia nuttalliana (salt accumulators), and Spartina pectinata (salt excretor) were investigated based on their relative abilities to phytoextract chloride from a cement kiln dust landfill in Bath, ON. Salt tolerance mechanisms were found to affect phytoextraction performance. On the basis of accumulation alone, P. australis had the greatest phytoextraction efficiency compared to the other two species due to its high biomass (despite having the lowest shoot ion… CONTINUE READING
