Effects of copper on growth, radial oxygen loss and root permeability of seedlings of the mangroves Bruguiera gymnorrhiza and Rhizophora stylosa

Abstract

Mangrove wetlands have experienced significant contaminant input such as copper (Cu), aggravated by rapid urban development. This study aimed to investigate the possible function of root permeability in metal detoxification. Pot trials were conducted to evaluate the responses of root permeability in relation to metal (Cu) exposure in seedlings of two… (More)
