The toxicity of two toxic elements, arsenic (As) and cadmium (Cd) (individually or in combination) on root elongation of wheat seedlings (Triticum aestivum, L.) were investigated both in hydroponics and in soils freshly spiked with the toxic elements. Median effective concentration (EC(50)) and non-observed effect concentration (NOEC) were used to investigate the toxic thresholds and potencies of the two elements. The EC(50) for As was 0.97 microM in hydroponics and 196 mgkg(-1) in soil, and 4… CONTINUE READING
