Title

Studies on Uptake of PCBs by Hordeum Vulgare (barley) and Lycopersicon Esculentum (tomato)

Abstract

The uptake of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from soil by barley and tomato plants was investigated. The results indicate a lack of active transport of these compounds. However, plants readily trap airborne PCBs escaping from soil, and a good correlation between vapor pressure of PCBs and their concentration in plant tissue was observed.
