  2. Today's Facebook post:

    The Round-leaved Pennycress (Noccaea rotundifolia/Thlaspi rotundifolium) is a mildly scented plant that grows among rocks and on screes in the mountains of Europe. It proliferates by sending out rooting stolons, which form new plants.

    This plant is not just known for its beauty! It has an important ecological role as a hyperaccumulator of heavy metals, such as zinc and cadmium. This means that it can grow in soil that has very high concentrations of metals. The plants absorb the metals through their roots, concentrating them at extremely high levels in their tissues.

    Hyperaccumulating plants can be used in phytoremediation, which is an eco-friendly technique that uses plants to remove non-degradable, hazardous toxins (such as heavy metals) from contaminated soil; thus, returning the ecosystem to a healthier state! {Spotted in Switzerland by Ophrys3656} #JungleDragon #Noccaearotundifolia #Thlaspirotundifolium #phytoremediation
