Hyperaccumulation of cadmium by roots, bulbs and shoots of garlic (Allium sativum L.).

Abstract

The effects of cadmium chloride concentration on root, bulb and shoot growth of garlic (Allium sativum L.), and the uptake and accumulation of Cd2+ by garlic roots, bulbs and shoots were investigated. The range of cadmium chloride (CdCl2 x 2.5H2O) concentrations was 10(-6) - 10(-2) M. Cadmium stimulated root length at lower concentrations (10(-6) - 10(-5) M… (More)
