Absorption of Cadmium and Lead Ions by Gametophyte of the MossPlagiomnium undulatum

Abstract

A cytochemical analysis of heavy-metal distribution was used to establish an increased ability of the marginal and midrib cells of moss leaves to accumulate metal ions from solutions of lead and cadmium nitrate. The adjacent leaf cells accumulated metal ions more slowly. As shown by the color reaction produced by metal–dithizone complex, the concentration… (More)
