Toxic metal(loid)s contamination and potential human health risk assessment in the vicinity of century-old copper smelter, Karabash, Russia
The results of EF, Pearson correlation and principle component analysis suggest the anthropogenic source of contamination for Cu, As, Pb, Hg and Cd in the exposed soil were the major contributors for the health risks and account for 81%, 12% and 5% of hazard quotient for children and adults, respectively.
Effect of heavy metals on photosynthetic apparatus and antioxidant status of elodea
Elodea plants (Elodea (Egeria) densa Planch.) were incubated in the presence of individual and mixed 1 μM sulfate salts of Ni, Cd, Cu, Zn, and Mn to study the influence of heavy metals (HM) on shoot
Copper Toxicity in Leaves of Elodea canadensis Michx.
Elodea canadensis (Canadian waterweed) has an ability to accumulate and bioconcentrate heavy metals. In this work, selected cellular responses for Cu treatment were studied in leaves of E.
The Response of Hydrophytes to Environmental Pollution with Heavy Metals
It is hypothesized that the differences between hydrophytes with respect to accumulation of metals and decrease in photosynthesis rate may cause predominant elimination of submerged species in waters polluted with metals.
Photosynthetic Metabolism and Activity of Carboxylating Enzymes in Emergent, Floating, and Submersed Leaves of Hydrophytes
Analysis of leaf differentiation, the Rubisco/PEPC activity ratio, the PEPC activity, and the composition of primary photosynthates in the “pulse–chase” experiments revealed no evidence of the ”C4 effect” in the submersed hydrophytes examined.
