Heavy metal pollution - ecophysiological and population genetic aspects

Heavy metal pollution - ecophysiological and population genetic aspects

Dusseldorfer Geobotanische Kolloquien 2: 43-57

A review of world literature, with results of original studies on trees and herbaceous species mainly near Aachen, W. Germany. Deposition of heavy metals in ecosystems gives rise to the evolution of heavy metal tolerant plants. This process has been shown to be a function of metal concentration, exposure time and sensitivity of the species to the metal.
