With the dramatic increase in nanotechnologies, it has become probable that biological systems will be exposed to excess of nanoparticles (NPs). However, the impact of NPs on plants, remains to be explored. The aim of this research was to determine the effects of ZnO NPs on tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) plants. Plant growth, photosynthetic characteristics, chlorophyll fluorescence parameters, and activities of antioxidative enzymes were measured in 35-d-old plants. The ZnO NP treatments… CONTINUE READING
