To investigate the genetic mechanism of mercury accumulation in maize (Zea mays L.), a population of 194 recombinant inbred lines derived from an elite hybrid Yuyu 22, was used to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for mercury accumulation at two locations. The results showed that the average Hg concentration in the different tissues of maize followed(More)
Crop production relies heavily on rainfall during the growing season, especially in developing countries. Drought, due largely to the effects of soil water deficit, is the most serious abiotic stress limiting crop production, accounting for ∼70% potential yield loss worldwide (Salekdeh et al., 2009). Therefore, a major goal for global agriculture is to(More)
