Scientists Reveal Roles of Macrophyte in the Biochemistry Cycle of Hg in Wetland

Dr. MENG Bo from IGCAS and Prof. CAI Yong from Florida International University characterized the role of sawgrass in Hg cycling in the Everglades. In their study, the stable isotope tracer techniques were employed to investigate Hg uptake by sawgrass from soil and from the atmosphere pathways, and the fate of Hg after absorption.

The results suggested that soil spiked 201Hg2+ was rapidly taken up by roots and transported to aboveground par... DETAILS...   MORE...
