We compared root responses to spatial heterogeneity of Zn and Ni in Thlaspi caerulescens J. and C. Presl from normal (NM plants) and metalliferous soil (M plants). We investigated whether the strong metal accumulation capacity of NM plants (compared to M plants) was related to a greater capacity of roots to grow towards metal-enriched soil compartments. Two similar experiments were conducted in summer (slow growth) and spring (high growth), respectively. Our study is the first to show that NM… CONTINUE READING
