In this study, potentially bioavailable copper was estimated in two soils (a fungicide polluted and a natural soil) using a passive sampling technique, DGT. As plants can alter copper mobility and bioavailability in the soil, the rhizosphere properties of Zea mays L. were investigated using rhizoboxes. Compared to the total concentration, the soluble and the potentially bioavailable copper concentration in the bulk soils were generally low (less than 0.20% and 0.06% respectively), with a… CONTINUE READING
