Potential of Aquatic Macrophytes as Bioindicators of Heavy Metal Pollution in Urban Stormwater Runoff

Abstract: International audienceThe concentrations of heavy metals in water, sediments, soil, roots, and shoots of five aquatic macrophytes species (Oenanthe sp., Juncus sp., Typha sp., Callitriche sp.1, and Callitriche sp.2) collected from a detention pond receiving stormwater runoff coming from a highway were measured to ascertain whether plants organs are characterized by differential accumulations and to evaluate the potential of the plant species as bioindicators of heavy metal pollution in urban stormwater runoff.… Show more

“…The sensitivity to different substances allows the use of S. molesta as a biological indicator of contaminated environments (Suñe et al, 2007) while its high growth rate favors its use as phytoremediation agent. In addition to the ability to absorb nutrients, Kumar et al (2008) and Ladislas et al (2012) reported that some species of macrophytes have great potential for removing heavy metals from water and sediments. Although the metal removal capacity is a desirable feature in macrophytes used in phytoremediation of contaminated aquatic environments, it is important to know the morphological and physiological damage caused by heavy metal accumulation on macrophyte tissues (Milan et al, 2006).…”
