SummaryThe effects of increase in copper contamination in potting compost/copper mine waste mixtures on the germination and growth of the following species has been examined: Agrostis tenuis, Poa trivialis, Lolium perenne, Dactylis glomerata, Cynosurus cristatus, Anthoxanthum odoratum, Arrhenatherum elatius, Plantago lanceolata and Trifolium repens. Copper tolerant A. tenuis from Parys Mountain was used as control.Plant dry weight and plant height decreased with increase in proportion of copper… CONTINUE READING
