Title

Heavy metal bioavailability in mine drainage-receiving constructed wetland plants

Author

Abstract

"Mine drainages containing heavy metals pose a threat to biota because of their toxic effects, and wetlands provide a viable treatment option because of their low cost and high efficiency of metal uptake. The removal mechanisms involved in the wetland treatment process are various and plant uptake is one of these mechanisms. However, plant uptake can potentially cause metal transmission into the food chain. This study aimed to gain a better understand of the impact that is caused by interactions between plants and trace metals in wetlands receiving mine drainage"--Abstract, leaf iii.
