On 19, Aug 2020 | In Publications | By Parisa Setayesh
EES student, Sara Perl Egendorf (advisors: Joshua Cheng, Brooklyn and Peter Groffman, Brooklyn College and ASRC), alongside Peter, Joshua, and Gerry Moore, just published one of her dissertation chapters: “The limits of lead (Pb) phytoextraction and possibilities of phytostabilization in contaminated soil: a critical review. In the International Journal of Phytoremediation.
“This review article focuses on lead (Pb), one of the most ubiquitous and harmful toxicants found in soil. Our objective is to address misconceptions regarding the ability of plants to uptake Pb through their roots and translocate it to above-ground tissues, and their ability to act as hyperaccumulators and thereby phytoextract Pb.”
