Phytoremediation of Heavy Metals Contaminated Soils by Catharanthus roseus

V. Subhashini [2] | A.V.V.S. Swamy

Abstract: In the present study Catharanthus roseus (Apocynaceae family) an herbaceous ornamental plant was used for the Phytoremediation of lead, nickel, zinc, cadmium and chromium contaminated soils. Heavy metals total accumulations in root, stem and leaf was calculated and Bioconcentration factor, Translocation factor values was also calculated. Finally, the result shows that the plant species was good accumulator of these heavy metals.

Keywords: Heavy metals, Phytoremediation, Bioconcentration factor, Translocation factor, Catharanthus roseus
