Research Location UPLB
Research Description It is important that we study the vegetation present in the areas affected with mine tailings. The succession process occurring in the mined sites are important in understanding how the study in the area as well as other mined sites can be rehabilitated. Conversely, identifying and studying the plant species present in the area and how these contribute to the succession process is important to establish baseline information.
