Abstract

Evaluates the phytoremediation potential of 17 plant species growing on a contaminated site in north Florida. Plants with high bioconcentration factors and low translocation factors of metals have the potential for phytostabilization. Of all the plant species, Phyla nodiflora was the most efficient in accumulating Cu and Zn it its shoots. Overall, native plant species may have the potential for phytoremediation of contaminated sites.
