Genetically-engineered populus hybrids and metalliferous soil remediation

Monica A. Schmidt
With global heavy metal pollution increasing, there is a need for innovative metal decontamination processes. Plants that have the ability to sequester metal contaminants within their tissues promise to be a cost-effective soil remediation practice. A poplar hybrid clone, Populus alba x P.tremula (INRA clone 717-1B4), was selected for this soil metal remediation research due to its large biomass and extensive deep tap root system that enables it to encounter many contaminants within its surroundings....
