Created wetlands not only treat mine drainage, landfill leachate, urban runoff, and sewage, but also control groundwater seepage contaminated with RDX and TNT. Other existing and developing waste management practices such as land farming, vegetative buffer strips, and vegetative capping of landfills can similarly be related to tree or grass planting (Table 1-1). Other long-standing practices, such as revegetation to prevent erosion and to control nonpoint source pollution, are covered under grass planting.

Nitromethane, Reductive and oxidative nitroethane, and enzymes may be serially involved in different nutrients parts of the plant Soil, wastewater, Proof of concept being Contaminant translocated RDX investigated from soil or water into wetlands, and groundwater leaves and broken down by photolysis Medina et al. : United Kingdom; and VC: vinyl chloride. Plant Physiological Processes 25 • Distinguish active plant uptake from sorption and other passive processes that sequester contaminants in different ways (Nzengung and Jeffers 2001) These fundamental concepts aid in limiting the proliferation of terminology for phytoremediation as noted in Table 1-3.

In situ: phreatophytes transpire large quantities of groundwater or soil moisture to dewater aquifers (using deep planting, planting trees in shallow wells, infiltration control, and root training) and control soil infiltration and leaching of contaminants.
