Heavy metals such as cadmium (Cd) may affect different physiological functions in plants. We carried out a hydroponic experiment under greenhouse conditions in order to evaluate the effect of Cd on photosynthetic and physiological parameters of safflower. The responses of six safflower genotypes (Nebraska-10, 2811, Kouseh, S149, C111, and K12) to four concentrations of CdCl2 (0, 1.5, 3, and 4.5 mg L−1) were examined. Mean shoot and root dry masses of safflower plants were reduced by nearly 57… CONTINUE READING
