As the importance of Wetlands has been highlighted in the past quarter-
century, a lot of research has been done to determine terrestrial plant
suitability for absorbing and detoxifying particular minerals and compounds.

It's fairly easy to find out, too, once you know _where_ to look. Pull a
Google search on "Wetlands" or "Wetland Reclamation", then browse to your
heart's content...
