A new histochemical method for Ni determination has been developed and employed to study the pattern of Ni distribution in plant tissues. Two-day-old seedlings of maize (Zea mays L.) were transferred onto 15, 20, 25, and 35 μM Ni(NO3)2 solutions in the presence of 3 mM Ca(NO3)2, and Ni localization in shoot and root tissues was investigated at days 2 and 7 of the incubation. Following two days of incubation, Ni was found in all root tissues, and its content increased with the period of exposure… CONTINUE READING
