The effects of the heavy metal Cd in Malus xiaojinensis were investigated using hydroponic cultures. Chlorophyll and Fe concentrations in young leaves were markedly decreased by Cd treatment, although Fe concentration was significantly enhanced in the roots. A comparative examination of the Fe-deficiency responses due to Fe deficiency and Cd treatment was also performed. Both Fe deficiency and Cd treatment induced responses similar to those of Fe-deficiency in M. xiaojinensis, including… CONTINUE READING
