Some regularities in the accumulation of lead in urban plants (by example of Vladivostok)

Article

Abstract

The ability of plants to accumulate lead is studied for 128 plant species from 44 families and 28 genera of the Far Eastern flora. A significant variation in the content of lead in the assimilation organs of plants is observed; the variation is within 0.81–25.67 mg/kg of air-dry matter. The main regularities in the accumulation of metals by plants of different systematic taxa and biomorphological groups are revealed. The groups of plants according to the intensity of lead accumulation and the types of metal-concentrating species are identified. The species promising for phytoremediation and phytoindication in an urban environment are recommended.
