Long-term ecological behaviour of abandoned uranium mill tailings. 2, Growth patterns of indigenous vegetation on terrestrial and semi-aquatic areas / by Margarete Kalin ; for Environment Canada, Atomic...: En42-1/0-3-2E-PDF ; En49-4/3-2E
"Semi-aquatic and terrestrial areas on abandoned or inactive uranium mill tailings in Ontario were studied in order to identify the growth characteristics of the naturally invading species dominating these areas. Semi-aquatic areas of tailings sites have been invaded by cattails. These species formed wetland communities which varied in size, but all were essentially monocultures of Typha latifolia, T. angustifolia, or of the hybrids T. glauca. Sedges, Scripus cyperinus (wool-grass) and Phragmites australis (reedgrass), were found in transition zones between the cattail stand and the dry section of the tailings site. The expansion of the cattail stands appeared to be controlled by the hydrological conditions on the site, rather than the chemical characteristics of the tailings"--Abstract, page i.
