Preliminary field studies were carried out at Dolfrwynog Bog in July 2000. Replicate samples of water, Armeria maritima plants and the soils adhering to its roots were collected and analysed for copper. Concentrations of up to 6486 mg kg−1 of copper in the soils were recorded. Accumulation of copper by the plant as expressed by concentration factors (CF) show that it is acting mainly as a copper excluder. Of the copper that is taken up, most of it is retained within the roots with very little… 
Bioavailability of copper within Dolfrwynog Bog soils, North Wales, UK
Abstract Many studies have been reported in literature on the copper impregnated Dolfrwynog Bog and its flora, in particular the Cu-tolerant Armeria maritima. This paper investigates the
Screening of metal uptake by plant colonizers growing on abandoned copper mine in Kapunda, South Australia
Acacia pycnantha, the Australian pioneer legume species with EF 0.03, 0.32, and 0.01 for Cu, Zn, Cd, and Pb, respectively, emerged as another strong metal excluder and consequently as an ideal metal stabilizer.
Armeria maritima from a calamine heap--initial studies on physiologic-metabolic adaptations to metal-enriched soil.
Changes of organic acids concentrations in Armeria treated with metals may suggest their role in metal translocation from roots to shoots and in Pb-tolerance of Manasterz population and in Zn-, Cd-t tolerance of calamine population from Bolesław.
Strategies of heavy metal uptake by three Armeria species growing on different geological substrates in Serbia
None of the three investigated Armeria species showed shoot hyperaccumulative potential for any of the investigated heavy metals and they could be considered as root accumulators, considering their potential to accumulate medium to large amounts of Zn, Cr, Cr and Cd in their roots.
Phytoremediation: Mechanisms and Adaptations
Metal contamination of soils is ubiquitous around the globe. Metals accumulate in the soils to toxic levels that may lead to accumulation of metals in plants to unacceptable levels. Metal
Paclobutrazol and plant-growth promoting bacterial endophyte Pantoea sp. enhance copper tolerance of guinea grass (Panicum maximum) in hydroponic culture
The present study has provided a new insight into the exploitation of energy plant in heavy metal polluted condition by the way of plant growth regulation for increasing heavy metal tolerance in guinea grass.

Callus induction and establishment of cell suspension cultures of the halophyte Armeria maritima (Mill.) Willd.
Abstract The objective of this work was to establish a cell suspension culture from Armeria maritima (Mill.) Willd., an halophyte so far only valuable for horticultural purposes, as a pre-requisite
Identification of weed plants excluding the uptake of heavy metals.
Using the field pot-culture and sample-analysis method, it was determined that Oenothera biennis and Commelina communis were Cd- excluders and Taraxacum mongolicum was a Zn-excluder.
Research on the Mechanisms of Plant Enrichment and Detoxification of Cadmium
This article summarises the research progress on the enrichment of heavy metal cadmium in plants in recent years, including the uptake, transport, and accumulation of Cd in plants.


Copper tolerance in a population of Silene vulgaris ssp. maritima (A. & D. Love) at Dolfrwynog Bog near Dolgellau, North Wales
Differences in copper tolerance observed between the two populations had a genetic basis and the Dolfrwynog Bog population is a copper tolerant ecotype.
Preliminary assessment of metal bioavailability to plants in the Neves Corvo area of Portugal
AbstractCistus species and Quercus rotundifolia were collected from near the Neves Corvo copper mine and from an area 12 km from the mine. These species are widely distributed in southern Portugal.
