Description

Soil microorganisms and plants were studied in samples of arsenic-contaminated soil from two cattle dip sites. The aim was to delineate the parameters that will determine the feasibility of future remediation by growing arsenic-accumulating plants, including the identity and characteristics of some rhizosphere soil microbes. The soil samples contained high total, but low soluble arsenic concentrations which, together with other properties, resembled the previously reported characteristics of...[Show more]
