Salicylic acid (SA) is a potent signaling molecule in plants and is involved in eliciting specific responses to biotic and abiotic stresses. The aim of this study is to investigate whether the exogenous application of SA can improve cadmium (Cd) induced inhibition of photosynthesis in castor bean (Ricinus communis L.) plants. The effects of SA and Cd on plant growth, spectral reflectance, pigment contents, chlorophyll fluorescence and gas exchange were examined in a hydroponic cultivation… CONTINUE READING
