The authors research is motivated by the need to protect the human chain and the environment from contamination by agricultural and industrial toxic chemicals. The objective of their research is to learn what plant mechanisms determine uptake, translocation, accumulation, and biodegradation of toxic chemicals in terrestrial plants. They believe that with this knowledge, a model can be developed that will be useful in understanding and predicting chemical fate in plants. The authors are also concerned about the effects of chemicals on the plants physiology and the resultant effect on uptake patterns and biomass production. Their work has been divided into the following three areas: database development, chemical fate experiments in plants, and model development.
