The capacity of Pistia stratiotes L. for metal accumulation and its remediation potential were studied under laboratory and natural conditions. It has been found that in the roots of P. stratiotes the content of various elements can be 2-10 times higher than that in its leaves. It has been shown that this plant selectively accumulates Li, Co, Ni, Sr, Cd, and Bi. The performed investigations suggest that P. stratiotes possesses a high remediation potential. At the same time, it is characterized by a high potential for naturalization in natural water bodies, which can bring the threat to natural diversity and water resources of Ukraine.
