Plant research. Plant growing in contaminated land by a nickel factory. Research is being done into these plants to see what enables them to grow in such areas. It is hoped that this will help to produce other native plants with similar tolerances that can be introduced to repopulate these barren areas. Photographed in Noumea, New Caledonia, Pacific Ocean.
