Tropical trees: Are they good alternatives for biomonitoring the atmospheric level of potential toxic elements near to the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest?

Abstract

The foliar accumulation and enrichment factor for 36 elements were studied in Psidium guajava 'Paluma' (fruit tropical tree) and Tibouchina pulchra Cogn. (native tree of the Atlantic rainforest) plants exposed around the city of Cubatão/Brazil, to propose a biomonitoring species in the Atlantic rainforest. The field experiments were conducted in six sites… (More)
