The protective effects of polyamines (PAs) against copper (Cu) toxicity were investigated in the leaves of Nymphoides peltatum. Cu treatment increased the putrescine (Put) level and lowered spermidine (Spd) and spermine (Spm) levels, thereby reducing the (Spd+Spm)/Put ratio in leaves. Exogenous application of Spd or Spm markedly reversed these Cu-induced(More)
Aquatic macrophytes were found to be the potential scavengers of heavy metals from aquatic environment. In this study, several physiological responses of Alternanthera philoxeroides (Mart.) Griseb leaves to elevated concentrations of cadmium (up to 10mM) were investigated. It was found that A. philoxeroides was able to accumulate cadmium in its leaves. The(More)
The effectiveness of water lettuce in removing pollutants including organic pollutants, nitrogen (NH3-N) and total phosphorus (TP) from livestock wastewater along with the physiological effects and their correlations, was studied for the first time. The results showed that the water lettuce had higher removal efficiency with low concentrations of livestock(More)
In this paper, Hydrilla verticillata was cultured in the hoagland solution containing 5 mg L(-1) Cd2+ and different concentration ascorbic acid (AsA) to investigate the protective action of AsA to aquatic plant suffered from heavy metal's stress. The O2 generation rate, H2O2 content, antioxidants (AsA and GSH) contents, and antioxidant enzymes (SOD, POD,(More)
This paper reported the pollutant removal performances of a hybrid wetland system for the treatment of aquaculture wastewater. The system consisted of two treatment stages: a subsurface vertical flow (VF) wetland, followed by a horizontal flow (HF). The aquaculture wastewater with the different concentrations such as eutrophy and mesotrophy was treated(More)
