Concentration of heavy metals (Al, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sr, V and Zn) as well as macronutrients (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S) were measured in water, bottom sediments and plants from anthropogenic lakes in West Poland. The collected plants were: Phragmites australis, Potamogeton natans, Iris pseudoacorus, Juncus effusus, Drepanocladus aduncus, Juncus bulbosus, Phalaris arundinacea, Carex remota and Calamagrostis epigeios. Two reference lakes were sampled for Nymphaea alba, Phragmites… Expand

Metal concentration showed a significant positive correlation between industrial effluent, lake water, and lake sediment and metals concentration in plants and lake ambient, which indicated the potential of aforesaid set of wetland macrophytes for pollution monitoring. Expand
Accumulation of Cd and Pb in water, sediment and two littoral plants (Phragmites australis, Typha angustifolia) of freshwater ecosystem
Abstract Cd and Pb concentrations were measured in water, sediment and plant organs collected from selective sites located along the Bogdanka river (Poznań, Poland) in the 2012 growing season. TheExpand
Metals Concentration and Accumulation in Several Aquatic Macrophytes
ABSTRACT Aquatic macrophytes can be used in the studies of water ecosystems quality and in monitoring of metals and other pollutants. This study was focused on assessment of metals accumulation inExpand
Heavy Metal Accumulation by Certain Aquatic Macrophytes from Lake Sevan (Armenia)
General contamination of heavy metals in the environment is a major global concern, which has provoked the emergence of phytoremediation technologies for cleaning aquatic environment. Heavy metalsExpand
The Accumulation and Distribution of Metals in Water, Sediment, Aquatic Macrophytes and Fishes of the Gruža Reservoir, Serbia
The concentrations of iron, lead, cadmium, copper, manganese, mercury and arsenic were measured in water, sediment, five macrophytes and five fish species in the Gruža Reservoir and the values of the ratio between element concentrations in the sediment and those in the water were the highest for Fe and As.

Trace element transfer from soil to leaves of macrophytes along the Jalle d’Eysines River, France and their potential use as contamination biomonitors
A canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) was used to assess correlations between foliar TE concentrations and total TE concentrations in the soil and leaves of seven rooted macrophytes investigated along an urban river with increasing TE contamination in riverbank soils. Expand
Bioaccumulation of Trace Elements in Trophic Levels of Wetland Plants and Waterfowl Birds
Chemical analysis show that bioaccessibility concentrations of Mn, V, and Pb are higher than other metals, and BAF of V, Pb, and Cr indicates high accumulation by plants and great pollution rate in the area of study. Expand
Environmental study of some metals on several aquatic macrophytes
Assessment of metals accumulation in certain aquatic macrophytes (biomonitors), in comparison with water and sediment of the lake, exhibited different metals concentration in aquatic plants, depending on the plant organ. Expand
Metal accumulation and distribution in the organs of Reeds and Cattails in a constructed treatment wetland (Etueffont, France)
The greatest mean concentrations of metals were found during spring in roots and to a lesser extent in the rhizomes of the two species and these two species may be considered promising alternatives for bioremediation. Expand
Seasonal dynamics of heavy metal bioaccumulation (Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn and Pb) in Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud. in Bardača fishpond
Paper monitors seasonal dynamics of heavy metals bioaccumulation (Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn and Pb) of emerged plant Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud. on two localities (Necik and Sinjak) in the areaExpand


Aluminium and iron burdens of aquatic biota in New Zealand streams contaminated by acid mine drainage: effects of trophic level.
In invertebrate species exposed to very high concentrations of Al and Fe varied considerably in body burdens, suggesting that groups of insects differ considerably in their physiological or morphological ability to exclude potentially toxic metals. Expand

Concentrations of N, P, S, Na, K, Mg, Ca, Mn, Fe, Cu, Cd, Zn, Pb, Al, and AIA (acid insoluble ash) m mosses (three Sphagnum species and Tomenthypnum nitens, all hummock species) from a variety ofExpand
Heavy metals in aquatic plants and sediments from water systems in Macedonia, Greece.
The lake was less contaminated than the rivers, the contamination of which is dependent on the metal species, whereas the reverse was the case for Zn, Cd, and Mn. Expand
A reference system for continental running waters: plant communities as bioindicators of increasing eutrophication in alkaline and acidic waters in north-east France
Two bioindication scales of the degree of eutrophication based on aquatic macrophyte communities were established in two types of running waters free of organic matter, the one in acidic “soft”Expand

Lake Plessa 107 (Lusatia, Germany): an extremely acidic shallow mining lake
The lake water shows an extreme acidification with high concentrations of calcium, iron, aluminium, manganese and sulphate and despite low TIC and TP concentrations allowing only a low primary production in the pelagial within the oligotrophic range, anoxic conditions can occur during stratification because of Fe(II) oxidation and anoxic groundwater inflow.
