Abstract The perennial grass Spartina alterniflora , common to salt marshes of eastern North America, is known to accumulate metals from marsh sediment and release them into the environment. One pathway by which Spartina alterniflora releases metals is through the excretion of metal-containing salts produced by leaf salt glands. We examined the differential release of metals by Spartina alterniflora and the invasive perennial grass Phragmites australis in an urban marsh ecosystem. Leaching… CONTINUE READING
