Av. values of Ni, Cr, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, and Co in electroplating waste effluents from an automobile factory and in soil from the area near the waste discharge were 200 and 124, 56 and 140, 24 and 110, 15 and 25.1, 14 and 29, 12 and 16, and 3.8 mg/L and 30.7 mg/g, resp. Cymbopogon caesius, Chloris barbata, Cyperus alopecuroides, And Kyllinga brevifolia growing in the polluted area accumulated more trace metals than similar plants growing in nonpolluted areas. However, the metal pollution by the plants was less than by the soil. Sedges tended to accumulate more trace metals than grasses and the amt. accumulated was related to plant biomass.
