Physiological and biochemical responses of wheat seedlings to drought, UV-B radiation, and combined stress were investigated. Drought, UV-B, and combined stresses retarded seedling growth by 26.5, 29.1, and 55.9%, respectively. One reason for growth retardation may be the oxidative damage indicated by an increase in the H2O2 content and lipid peroxidation degree. Furthermore, there was negative correlation between shoot fresh weight and H2O2 content, fresh weight and the content of… CONTINUE READING
