This study aimed at verifying the lead tolerance of water hyacinth and at looking at consequent anatomical and physiological modifications. Water hyacinth plants were grown on nutrient solutions with five different lead concentrations: 0.00, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00 and 4.00 mg L-1 by 20 days. Photosynthesis, transpiration, stomatal conductance and the Ci/Ca rate(More)
Low concentrations of cadmium cause anatomical responses in leaf chlorenchyma enhancing Schinus molle photosynthesis and tolerance. This work is aimed to evaluate the effects of cadmium (Cd) on leaf anatomy and photosynthesis in Schinus molle, a species that can cope with harsh environments. Seven-month-old S. molle plants were exposed over 90 days to(More)
Previous works show the development of thicker leaves on tolerant plants growing under cadmium (Cd2+) contamination. The aim of this study was to evaluate the Cd2+ effects on the leaf meristems of the tolerant species Schinus molle. Plants were grown in nutrient solution containing 0, 10, and 50 μM of Cd2+. Anatomical analysis was performed on leaf(More)
