Elodea plants (Elodea (Egeria) densa Planch.) were incubated in the presence of individual and mixed 1 μM sulfate salts of Ni, Cd, Cu, Zn, and Mn to study the influence of heavy metals (HM) on shoot growth, structural-and functional parameters of the photosynthetic apparatus, lipid peroxidation, enzymatic activities of the antioxidant defense system (superoxide dismutase and catalase), and the content of non-protein and protein thiols in leaves. The accumulation of HM in leaves decreased in a… CONTINUE READING
