In a previous study, we found that the application of silicon (Si) was beneficial in improving germination, growth and yield of faba bean (Vicia faba L.) plants under heavy metal (HM) stress. In the current study we try to clarify the mechanism that might be involved in the ameliorating effects of Si on faba bean plants grown under different levels of Cd and Pb. The effect of Si on cell membrane stability, photosynthetic pigments, carbohydrate contents, antioxidant enzyme activities, free… Expand
