Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic trace metal pollutant for humans, animals, and plants. Tobacco is a wellknown efficient accumulator of Cd and the genotypic differences in Cd uptake and the response to Cd was not determined. The objectives of this study were to investigate: 1) the effects of Cd on the growth and development of different tobacco cultivars; 2) the differences among tobacco cultivars in Cd concentration, uptake, and use for the phytoremediation of polluted soils with Cd; and (3) the… CONTINUE READING
