Copper uptake and translocation in a submerged aquatic plant Hydrilla verticillata (L.f.) Royle.


A comprehensive understanding of the uptake, tolerance and transport of heavy metals in the wetland system through aquatic plants will be essential for the development of phytoremediation technologies. Copper accumulation and translocation of a submersed macrophyte Hydrilla verticillata (L.f.) Royle were investigated. Plant shoots showed a significant… (More)
