Abstract Copper uptake and release rates by Fontinalis antipyretica were investigated. A contamination stage in which the plants were exposed to Cu concentrations in the range 0.09–0.75 mg l−1 was followed by a decontamination period, exposing the plants to metal-free water. Tanks were operated in perfectly mixed conditions and the illumination at water surface was 740 lux. Short and long duration experiments (217 and 1008 h, respectively) were carried out with plants collected in May and… CONTINUE READING
