The degree of contamination by heavy metals (arsenic, copper, lead, tin and zinc) in soil and transfer to plants has been studied. Specimens of plant species from five locations in an area of 10 × 10 m were sampled with their corresponding soils. Thirty six plant species including two shallow water aquatic plants were identified. Soil and plant specimens were analyzed by using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry. It was found that metal concentration in soil was highly… Expand

INVESTIGATION OF HEAVY METALS ACCUMULATION IN PLANTS GROWING IN CONTAMINATED SOILS (CASE STUDY: QAZVIN PROVINCE, IRAN)
Environmental pollution with heavy metals is a global disaster that is related tohuman activities. This study was conducted to determine the extent of heavy metalsaccumulation by plant species in LiaExpand

This study has been carried out to determine the accumulation of heavy metals (arsenic, copper, lead, tin and zinc) in fish samples collected from former tin mining catchment. Total eight types ofExpand
Transfer of metals from crude oil impacted soils to some native wetland species, the Niger-delta, Nigeria: Implications for phytoremediation potentials
In this study, wetland species growing naturally in the surrounding of two crude oil facilities were sampled and screened for their phytoremediation potentials for zinc, lead, nickel, chromiumExpand
Phytoremediation potential and morphological changes of plants growing in the vicinity of lead smelter plant
TLDR
This study suggests that I. asarifolia and U. decumbens have potential for phytostabilization at multi-metal-contaminated site and highlight possible damage in morphological leaf changes. Expand
Metal accumulation in populations of Calamagrostis epigejos (L.) Roth from diverse anthropogenically degraded sites (SE Europe, Serbia)
TLDR
Results indicate that Calamagrostis epigejos uptakes a significant portion of the available fraction of heavy metals in the soil and stores it in the roots, thereby exhibiting a certain potential for metal phytostabilization. Expand
Morphological changes induced by heavy metals in dandelion (Taraxacum officinale Web.) growing on mine soils
TLDR
Although macromorphology does not present evidence of phytotoxicity, the recorded observations of the micromorphological characteristics of leaves and roots, show a suffering state of the plants, strictly related to HM content. Expand
Heavy metal accumulation and distribution in Phragmites australis seedlings tissues originating from natural and urban catchment
TLDR
Both types of seedlings can be used to decontaminate environments rich in HM, but the level of HM absorbed by seedlings (in the first stage of growth) should be considered due to the behavior in the target phytoremediation site. Expand
Heavy metals accumulation in suburban roadside plants of a tropical area (Jengka, Malaysia)
IntroductionThis study aims to examine the uptake and translocation of Cd, Cu, Fe, and Pb in different parts of three roadside plant species grown in the semi-urban of Jengka, Pahang,Expand
Hyperaccumulation of Potentially Toxic Micronutrients by Plants
High concentrations of heavy metals in the soil have detrimental effects on ecosystems and human health through agricultural products or contaminated drinking water. Extremely contaminated soils mustExpand
Uptake and Translocation of Metals in Different Parts of Crop Plants Irrigated with Contaminated Water from DEPZ Area of Bangladesh
TLDR
Bioaccumulation and translocation of metals from roots to edible parts of the crop plants were varied for almost all elements studied, and Absorption of metals was significantly more in the roots compared to other plant parts. Expand

Manganese accumulation in plants of the mining zone of Hidalgo, Mexico.
TLDR
Soil and sediments from the mining zone of Molango presented moderately alkaline and reducing conditions, a normal electrical conductivity, a sandy texture and medium-to-high cation exchange capacities, which favored the presence of Mn(2+), which is the form most easily assimilated by plants.

Plant and rhizosphere processes involved in phytoremediation of metal-contaminated soils
TLDR
To successfully manipulate and optimise future phytoextraction technologies, it is argued that a fully combined understanding of soil supply and plant uptake is needed. Expand
Accumulation of Pb, Cd, Cu and Zn in plants and hyperaccumulator choice in Lanping lead-zinc mine area, China.
TLDR
A field survey of higher terrestrial plants growing on Lanping lead-zinc mine, China were conducted to identify species accumulating exceptionally large concentrations of Pb, Cd, Cu and Zn of 20 samples of 17 plant species, finding plants in Paomaping had more accumulating ability to Pb and Cd and plants in Jinfeng River had more accumulate ability to Cu.

An assessment of metals in an estuarine wetlands ecosystem
TLDR
The metals, including total chromium, were tightly bound to the sediments and therefore not bioavailable and no pattern of higher metal concentrations in biotic samples from the Study Site was found. Expand
