Arsenic is known to have several phytotoxic effects and one of them is the reduction inchlorophyll content. Determination of chlorophyll content is often accomplished to assess theimpact of most environmental stresses, as the pigment content is linked to the visual symptomsand photosynthetic plant productivity. Hence, the present investigation was undertaken to studythe effect of As on chlorophyll synthesis with a view to gain some insights into the possiblemechanism. Supply of 0.01 to 1.00 mM… CONTINUE READING
