Excess cadmium (Cd2+) in the soil environment is taken up by plants and can cause phytotoxicity. Elevated temperatures also lead to deleterious effects on plants. Plants are very often exposed to a combination of stresses rather than a single stress. The effect of Cd2+ and heat stress (HS) on the growth, root ultrastructure, lipid peroxidation (MDA… CONTINUE READING
