Algae are exposed to elevated levels of heavy metals in water bodies generally for a long-term, and occasionally for a short-term duration. The present study deals with oxidative stress in Scenedesmus sp., commonly found in nutrient-rich freshwaters, during short- (6h) and long-term (7d) exposure to Cu(2+) and Zn(2+). The cells accumulated almost 2- and 4-times more Cu(2+) and Zn(2+) inside the cells during long-term than during short-term exposure to these metals. But the data on… CONTINUE READING
