Lead in plants and soil - Got A Plant Problem?

Plants can act to reduce their uptake of lead and by adding calcium and phosphorus to the soil, you can also reduce the amount of lead taken up by plants. In addition to direct toxic effects on plants, lead can indirectly affect a variety of plants. At concentrations of 10000‑40000 mg/kg, lead

01-11-2006  Lead concentrations in surface soil ranged from 325 to 142 400 mg/kg. The highest lead concentration in soil was found at the ore dressing plant area and lowest at a natural pond area. In different areas, the concentrations of lead in plants were different when comparing various study sites.

Effects of Lead on Plant Growth, Lead

03-02-2012  Our results indicated that lead tissue uptake increased with increasing concentrations of lead (i.e. 20.0 μM versus 1.0 μM). However, plant roots and shoots displayed symptoms of toxicity as evidenced by their decreased biomass with increasing concentrations of lead. Also, plants exposed to higher Pb concentrations exhibited mild chlorosis.

Effects of lead on the environment

Populations of plants, micro-organisms and inverte­brates may be affected by lead concentrations of 500 to 1,000 ppm, allowing more lead-tolerant populations of the same or different species to take their place. This will change the type of ecosystem present.

Chapter 6.7 Lead - World Health Organization

Mass concentrations are typically used to express lead concentrations in environmental media such as air, soil or water, so that conversion factors are not necessary. Different units, such as µg/dl, µg/l and µmol/l, are used, however, to characterize lead concentrations in blood. Multiplication by 0.048 gives the µg/dl equivalent in µmol/l.

EXPOSURE TO LEAD: A MAJOR PUBLIC HEALTH CONCERN

Lead present in tap water is rarely the result of its dissolution from natural sources but is mainly due to household plumbing systems containing lead pipes, solders and fittings. Water that has been in contact with lead in this way for an extended period (e.g. overnight) will have a higher concentration. Thus, lead concentrations can vary over ...

Lead quantities in plants, soil, and air near some

The lead contents of 27 varieties of consumer crops and plants sampled at various distances from some major highways in southern California and in local markets were carefully determined. Amounts in and on crops grown close to these highways were shown to be influenced by (a) distance from the highway, (b) extent of plant surface exposed, (c) external plant characteristics, (d) duration of ...

Impact of Lead-Contaminated Soil on Public Health

27-01-2016  An increase in soil lead concentration from 100 to 1100 ppm was associated with an estimated increase of 3.9 mcg/dl in the PbB concentration. The results of several studies have indicated that the increase in PbB concentration as a function of soil lead concentration is not linear.

In soils and suspended air particulates, concentrations of lead were influenced by distance from highway and direction of prevailing winds. All results demonstrated that lead accumulations in and on plants next to these highways in southern California were caused principally by aerial deposition and not by—at least to any great extent—absorption by the plant from lead-contaminated soil.

Some is also mined in Mexico and West Germany. World production of new lead is 6 million tonnes a year, and workable reserves total are estimated 85 million tonnes, which is less than 15 year's supply. Lead occurs naturally in the environment. However, most lead concentrations that are found in the environment are a result of human activities.

Element Concentrations Toxic to Plants, Animals, and Man

2 ELEMENT CONCENTRATIONS TOXIC TO PLANTS, ANIMALS, AND MAN Much has been written on the toxicities of some elements such as lead, mercury, and selenium, and our chief task with these elements was that of selecting the most useful reports to include. For some other elements, reports of toxicities are few and often in obscure publica­ tions.

Air Quality - Lead

Lead (or Pb in the periodic table) is a naturally occurring heavy metal that is found in the Earth’s crust. Lead can be released into soil, air and water through soil erosion, volcanic eruptions, sea spray and bushfires. The natural concentration of lead in the air is less than 0.1 microgram per cubic metre.
