  • This study evaluated the ability and mechanisms of 19 Pteris and non-Pteris species to accumulate arsenic (As) in a hydroponic system spiked with 300 microM As. The study included four Pteris vittata accessions (China, India, Poland, and the United Kingdom), P. biaurita and 17 non-Pteris species. Among the accessions, P. vittata from China and UK were the most and the least efficient in terms of As accumulation. The non-Pteris species Chielanthes sinuta, Adiantum raddianum, Polystichum… CONTINUE READING
