The toxicity effects of heavy metals (lead and cadmium) on germination, root length and dry biomass of tree species viz., Thespesia populneoides, Leucaena leucocephala and Delonex regia were evaluated. Cadmium was found to be more toxic than lead. The results further showed that dose response of heavy metals were inversely proportional to germination, root growth and dry biomass. The percentage germination and higher % DFC values showed that the seeds of L. leucocephala were least affected by… Expand
