Three laboratory-scale experiments were conducted to: (1) evaluate the ability of selected terrestrial, wetland, and aquatic plants to remove perchlorate from an aqueous solution; (2) compare the performance of different age classes of ne plant species; (3) evaluate the role of nutrients on perchlorate removal; (4) determine the fate of perchlorate removed from solution (e.g., plant tissue distribution; accumulation vs. breakdown); (5) document external plant responses to perchlorate; and (6) predict field-scale performance of the plant species evaluated. Perchlorate concentrations of 0.2, 2.0, and 20 ppm were tested in aqueous and sand treatments for ten-day periods in each experiment.
