In 2021, Dr Dorota Środek and prof. dr hab. Oimahmad Rahmonov conducted research in the Silesia area. The main goal of the study was the determination of the chemical composition of the soils and the Robinia pseudoacacia that grew in the studied areas. Sites with varying degrees of contamination were selected for sampling.

The article The properties of black locust Robinia pseudoacacia L. to selectively accumulate chemical elements from soils of Ecologically transformed areas, published in the journal Forests, compared heavy metal content in soil and tissues of the plant from all studied sites. Obtained results show that the black locust positively affects the soil formation in places strongly changed due to human activity. Therefore, it can be used to reclaim the natural environment in post-industrial areas, such as dumps, mines, or landfills.
