QUESTION: Australian plants and their tolerance/uptake of heavy metals including Pb.
19 Apr 2006, New South Wales Australia
You may or may not remember me. I came to you approx 2 years ago seeking info on heavy metals in vegetables. You provided me with heaps of info and got me in contact with Helen from Port Kembla where I consequently conducted part of my study. I have since published my study and will forward you a PDF (or hard copy) when I'm next in my office. I'm now embarking on my PhD looking at Australian plants and their tolerance/uptake of heavy metals including Pb. I saw that you recently had a post on a website regarding Pb tolerant Australian species and part of my research has focussed on this. When I have my work published I will be sure to send you a copy. I have had some pretty interesting results thus far! I am supervised by Naveen Bhatis (from ANSTO) who also appeared on that site and Balwant Singh at Sydney University. Our group has a lot to do with heavy metals in soils/plants. Any how I will keep in touch and in the future if you have any queries I would be more than willing to help in any way I can.

it's wonderful to hear from you and of course I'd love to receive your PDF and anything else you write. If you ever manage to put together a list of lead-tolerant Australian native plants then please send it in.
