Abstract

Biscutella laevigata is a facultative metallophyte, with populations on non-metalliferous and metalliferous soils. Some of its metallicolous populations have been shown to hyperaccumulate thallium or lead in nature. Only Tl hyperaccumulation has been experimentally confirmed. We aimed to compare the patterns of metal (hyper)accumulation and genetic diversity among populations of B. laevigata subsp. laevigata in NE Italy.
