Amaranthaceae, chrome, iron, Maryland

Many new genera and species of Amaranthaceae have been introduced into eastern United States with chrome, iron and other ores in the past ten years. Some of these have become weedy and have spread over considerable areas in the regions studied. Many have persisted since 1953 when this study was begun. In Maryland the areas are mainly in Baltimore City (Canton, Dundalk, Port Covington) along the port. In Virginia the area is near Newport News.
