	Location: Glasgow Site- Delaware, USA
	Starting:  Sept- Dec 1993 

Research Goals:

	We have little mechanistic data on plant physiological
processes and limiting steps in Pb accumulation, 
translocation, and tolerance in plants. Using certain metal-
accumulating plant species, that we have identified, as well 
as known and suspected hyperaccumlators (eg. Thlaspi sp), The 
VRS should undertake to: 

a) 	examine availability of soil- Pb for root uptake, 

b) 	examine the translocation of Pb from root to shoot, 

c) 	identify mechanisms of Pb detoxification in planta,

d) 	examine environmental alterations to increase (a-d)
