Soils and Plants


The research carried out in the Soils theme addresses the transfer of metals to vegetation, not so much from the perspective of phytotoxicity, but rather considering plants as vectors of metal transfer to humans through dietary intake. The Soils research will touch on such nationally important issues as Cd in Western Canadian grains and oilseeds, as well as the fate of metals applied to soils through the application of residues from industrial and municipal processes.
