Plant Uptake Of Heavy Metal Pollution At Riverview Eastside And Potential For Phytoremediation
MetadataShow full item record
This project was a continuation of prior work done studying the local Kalamazoo Riverview Eastside site (KRE), which currently stands as a brownfield site. Soil sampling and testing, vegetation surveying, and bioindicator surveillance had already been conducted giving insight into on-site conditions leading to this, one of hopefully several more steps that may lead to the restoration of this site via phytoremediation. Goals: Gain an understanding of heavy metal uptake within KRE vegetation. Find potential phytoremediators to help generate phytoremediation-centered cleanup strategies for the site.
