    (). Remediation technologies for soils contaminated with heavy metals. Journal of Environmental Engineering and Landscape Management: Vol. 13, No. 2, pp. Cited by: soils with pollutant levels marginally above acceptable stan-dards (HortResearch, ); however, plants do not have the ability to cleanse extremely polluted soils. Instead, they can be used in phytostabilization to reduce the movement of con-taminants to . Metal Contaminated Soil To reclaim these contaminated soils plants are grown (phytoremediation). While the plants used for phytoremediation on contaminated soil do rehabilitate the site, there may be a chance for changes in their DNA due to metal stress.
