Summary

In this paper, we examine correlations between the concentrations of metal ions, specifically copper as Cuz+ and iron as Fest, and the growth characteristics of two aquatic bladderworts (Utricularia gibba and U. macrorhiza). Our work involved field observations at several Utricularia sites in the Middle Atlantic States (USA), transplant studies at two locations within one marsh, and laboratory analyses.
