Heavy metal contamination is one of the most important abiotic stresses affecting physiological activities of plants. We investigated the effects of cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) on chlorophyll fluorescence (Fv/Fm, Fo, and Fm), photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll a and b), and proline in one-year-old seedlings of Robinia pseudoacacia. The seedlings were(More)
A study was conducted to identify plant species, diversity, life form and relevant species to Mediterranean climate, Irano-Torunian and Sahara-Sindian in Postband region (N 27°58′4″–28°2′16″, E 53°17′34″−53°22′30″). In total, 95 species belonging to 29 families and 69 genera of flora were surveyed and identified from December 2006 to June 2008. Composite(More)
Plants are capable of reducing environmental pollutions through uptaking contaminants in their tissues. In the study site, twenty one-year-old leaves and shoots as well as twenty soil samples were sampled and analyzed by Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP). We investigated the uptaking ability of lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) by the leaves and shoots of Platanus(More)
Fungal diversity in the Hyrcanian forests can greatly vary due to diverse ecological conditions. The scope of the present research was to investigate the diversity of wood decay fungi at three sites in the northern forests of Iran. Fruiting bodies of fungi were collected in three plots dominated by Quercus castaneifolia C.A.M. (oak) and Carpinus betulus L.(More)
