Abstract Poplar plants were exposed during 61 days to a soil added with heavy metals so as to contain 300 mg−1 soil dry weight (SDW) (Zinc) or 50 mg−1 SDW (Cadmium). The Cd treatment induced a delayed growth of poplar, whereas Zn induced no change in physiological parameters. Both treatments resulted in a significant metal accumulation in plants. Zn2+ and Cd2+ exhibited contrasting distribution within tissues, indicating dissimilar handling by the plant. The main difference was… Expand
Tolerance, toxicity and transport of Cd and Zn in Populus trichocarpa
Abstract Metal inputs to terrestrial ecosystems are of great concern due their toxicity to biota, especially for elements with no biological function such as cadmium. Fast-growing trees such asExpand
Rhizosphere effects of Populus euramericana Dorskamp on the mobility of Zn, Pb and Cd in contaminated technosols
PurposeThis study aimed at investigating the rhizosphere effects of Populus euramericana Dorskamp on the mobility of Zn, Pb and Cd in contaminated technosols from a former smelting site.Materials andExpand
Effects of exogenous NO supplied with different approaches on cadmium toxicity in lettuce seedlings
The study aimed to test the effects of sodium nitroprusside [SNP, a nitric oxide (NO) donor], supplied with different approaches on cadmium (Cd) toxicity in lettuce seedlings (Lactuca sativa) in aExpand
Recent Perspectives on Cross Talk Between Cadmium, Zinc, and Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in Plants
This review presents the updated information on cross talk between Cd–Zn–AM in plants grown on agricultural and metal-contaminated soils. Expand
Without exceeding the limits: industrial soil rich in Zn and Cd has no effect on purslane and lettuce but promotes geranium growth
It is concluded that metal uptake by plants remained within the limits of favorable growth and metal bioavailability was determined by the fact that metals were deposited over long periods and were thus strongly retained by soil colloidal phases and (b) Cd/Zn antagonism. Expand
Cadmium toxicity in crop plants and its alleviation by arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi: An overview
The potential role of AM fungi in enhancing Cd tolerance of plants is unfolded and mechanisms that are activated by plants to prevent the absorption or to detoxify Cd ions such as synthesis of antioxidants, osmolytes, phytochelatins, metallothioneins, etc are summarized. Expand
Natural and commercial Salix clones differ in their ecophysiological response to Zn stress
Among commercial clones, “Drago” was more sensitive to Zn stress, showing inhibition of growth, while “1962” clone showed a downregulation of PSII photochemistry following the slowdown in the Calvin-Benson cycle, while the natural Salix clone performed better compared to the other clones due to activation of a photosynthetic compensatory mechanism.

Metal accumulation by plants growing in China: Capacity, synergy, and moderator effects
Abstract Plant accumulation of heavy metals (HMs) has become a global concern, however, the bio-accumulation distributions, their inter-correlations, and relationships with influencing factors remainExpand
The investigation entitled “Effect of heavy metals on morphological and biochemical characteristics of Salix alba L. seedlings” was carried out at the Research Farm of Department of EnvironmentalExpand
Uptake of Heavy Metals by Trees: Prospects for Phytoremediation
It is known that heavy metals are taken up and translocated by plants to different degrees. Phytoremediation, the use of plants to decontaminate soil by taking up heavy metals, shows considerableExpand


Zinc and cadmium effects on growth and ion distribution in Populus tremula × Populus alba
The effects of cadmium and zinc on growth and mineral distribution in Populus tremula × P. alba genotype 717-1B4 were investigated and Cd was mainly stored in the woody parts of stem, whereas zinc was preferentially localized in the leaves. Expand
Cadmium-stress in nodulated white lupin: strategies to avoid toxicity
Results obtained suggest that white lupin has developed several strategies of defence against Cd, as a high retention of Cd by cell walls and complexation by thiol groups, both contributing to diminish the level of free Cd. Expand
Heavy metal accumulation in trees growing on contaminated sites in Central Europe.
Investigation of Zn and Cd accumulation in tissues of adult trees and associated herbaceous species collected from contaminated areas in Central Europe found metal partitioning between tissues showed a minimum in the wood, with increasing concentrations of Cd and Zn towards the leaves and fine roots.

Hydroponic screening for metal resistance and accumulation of cadmium and zinc in twenty clones of willows and poplars.
In spite of smaller Cd and Zn concentrations, the metal-tolerant clones Salix matsudana, Salix fragilis-1, and Salix purpurea-1 hold promise for phytoextraction as they produced large biomass and metal contents in leaves. Expand
Metal Tolerance, Accumulation and Translocation in Poplar and Willow Clones Treated with Cadmium in Hydroponics
Mean values of all the clones of the two Salicaceae species showed that willows had a far greater ability to tolerate cadmium than poplars, as indicated by the tolerance index (Ti), calculated on the dry weight of roots and shoots of plants. Expand
Cadmium tolerance and hyperaccumulation in a new Zn-hyperaccumulating plant species (Sedum alfredii Hance)
The results indicate that S. alfredii has an extraordinary ability to tolerate andhyperaccumulate Cd and this is the first report of the new Cd hyperaccumulator S.–alfred ii Hance, which provides an important plant material for understanding the mechanisms of Cd/Zn co- Hyperaccumulation and for phytoremediation of the heavy metal contaminated soils.

Uptake and accumulation of cadmium, lead and zinc by Siam weed [Chromolaena odorata (L.) King & Robinson].
Results confirm that C. odorata is a hyperaccumulator which grows rapidly, has substantial biomass, wide distribution and has a potential for the phytoremediation of metal contaminated soils. Expand
Co-segregation analysis of cadmium and zinc accumulation in Thlaspi caerulescens interecotypic crosses.
It is concluded that Cd and Zn accumulation is governed by multiple genes, and that C d tolerance and accumulation are independent traits in T. caerulescens. Expand
Localization and effects of cadmium in leaves of a cadmium-tolerant willow (Salix viminalis L.) I. Macrolocalization and phytotoxic effects of cadmium
Willows have been shown to be promising for Cd phytoextraction, and the intensity of visible phytotoxicity symptoms on the leaves increased from 3 to 50M and then decreased at higher concentrations, whereas at 100M, S. viminalis exhibited strong stress symptoms, whereas 200M impaired survival.

Plant Cd2+ and Zn2+ status effects on root and shoot heavy metal accumulation in Thlaspi caerulescens.
A speculative model is presented, suggesting that xylem loading may be one of the key sites responsible for the hyperaccumulation of Zn and Cd accumulation in Thlaspi caerulescens. Expand
