Biological effects of high copper and zinc concentrations and their interaction in rapeseed plants

Abstract

In experiments with rapeseed (Brassica napus L., cv. Westar) plants, it was confirmed that copper was considerably more toxic than zinc. The toxic effects of 50 and 150 μM CuSO4 were comparable to those of 1000 and 2500 μM ZnSO4. The analysis of the effects of these concentrations of copper and zinc on photosynthetic pigment contents and on the rate of… (More)
