SUMMARY The order of toxicity of different metals affecting root growth of seedlings of rye grass (Lolium perenne S24) was: copper > nickel > manganese > lead > cadmium > zinc > aluminium > mercury > chromium > iron. With the sole exception of manganese, these results confirm those of other studies and the order follows that of the stability of the metallic-organic complexes. The results are of value in predicting the toxicity of heavy metals in plant growth on contaminated soils.
