The effects of cadmium and zinc on growth and mineral distribution in Populus tremula × P. alba genotype 717-1B4 were investigated. Exposure to 360 mg(Cd) kg−1(soil) resulted in accumulation of Cd in all organs and inhibition of primary and secondary growth as well as of the net photosynthetic rate. No growth inhibition occurred under zinc exposure. Cd was mainly stored in the woody parts of stem, whereas zinc was preferentially localized in the leaves. Cd treatment also altered distribution of… Expand

Cadmium and Zinc are differentially distributed in Populus tremula x P. alba exposed to metal excess
Abstract Poplar plants were exposed during 61 days to a soil added with heavy metals so as to contain 300 mg Zn2+.kg−1 soil dry weight (SDW) (Zinc) or 50 mg Cd2+.kg−1 SDW (Cadmium). The Cd treatmentExpand
High Zn concentration does not impair biomass, cutting radial growth, and photosynthetic activity traits in Populus alba L.
Although the data of leaf Zn concentration were in the range usually reported as toxic for plants, Villafranca clone in Znt substrate were unaffected in terms of net CO2 assimilation and stomatal conductance to water vapor. Expand
Photosynthesis and growth response of two Paulownia hybrid lines to heavy metals Cd, Pb and Zn.
Paulownia tomentosa x fortunei (TF 01) and Paulownia elongata x fortunei (EF 02) hybrid lines exposed to different concentrations of Cd, Pb and Zn in hydroponic experiment were analyzed withExpand
Tolerance, toxicity and transport of Cd and Zn in Populus trichocarpa
Abstract Metal inputs to terrestrial ecosystems are of great concern due their toxicity to biota, especially for elements with no biological function such as cadmium. Fast-growing trees such asExpand
Rhizosphere effects of Populus euramericana Dorskamp on the mobility of Zn, Pb and Cd in contaminated technosols
PurposeThis study aimed at investigating the rhizosphere effects of Populus euramericana Dorskamp on the mobility of Zn, Pb and Cd in contaminated technosols from a former smelting site.Materials andExpand
Cadmium accumulation and tolerance in Populus nigra and Salix alba
The translocation factor (Tf) revealed a greater ability of Cd transport in willow than in poplar, and only poplar leaves showed an enhanced content of phytochelatins, whereas malic and citric acids rose in response to Cd only in the willow leaves. Expand
Modulation of Ionic and Water Status by Moringa oleifera Extract Against Cadmium Toxicity in Wheat ( Triticum aestivum )
Wilting and ionic disturbance are consequences of cadmium (Cd) toxicity in plants. The Cd interferes with uptake, transport and utilization of many micro and macronutrients, resultantly caused ionicExpand
Acute metal stress in Populus tremula×P. alba (717‐1B4 genotype): Leaf and cambial proteome changes induced by cadmium2+
An important tissue specificity of the response was observed, according to the differences in cell structures and functions of Populus tremula×P. Expand
Net cadmium flux and accumulation reveal tissue-specific oxidative stress and detoxification in Populus × canescens.
Results indicate a complex pattern of internal Cd allocation in P. × canescens resulting in higher ROS stress in wood than in bark and intermediate responses in roots and leaves, probably because of differential capacities of these tissues for the production of protective phenolic compounds. Expand
Quercus robur as a Potential Cd Phytostabilizator
Differences in Cd accumulation ability, mineral nutrients concentrations and observed damage upon Cd treatment of plants derived from different regions of origin are discussed and suggest the possible use of pedunculate oak in cadmium phytostabilization. Expand


Seasonal variations of cadmium and zinc in Arrhenatherum elatius, a perennial grass species from highly contaminated soils.
Seasonal variations of bioaccumulation are showed, underlying the necessity for in situ studies to specify the date of sampling and also the phenology of the collected plant sample, leading to the hypothesis of restriction in heavy metals translocation from roots to aerial parts during seed production.

Cadmium Toxicity: The effect on Macro- and Micro-Nutrient Contents in Soybean Seedlings
The effect of Cd (10, 100, and 200 μM) on tissue contents of macronutrients (N, P, K, Ca, Mg) and micronutrients (Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn) was investigated in hydroponically grown soybean (Glycine max)Expand
Cadmium uptake, localization and detoxification in Zea mays
Cadmium uptake, translocation and localization in maize roots and shoots at the tissue and cellular level were investigated. Metal accumulation in plant organs as well as symptoms of Cd toxicity wereExpand
High zinc concentrations reduce rooting capacity and alter metallothionein gene expression in white poplar (Populus alba L. cv. Villafranca).
The developmental and molecular data reveal that the in vitro model is a sensitive and reliable system to study heavy metal stress responses in Populus alba. Expand
Heavy metal accumulation in trees growing on contaminated sites in Central Europe.
Investigation of Zn and Cd accumulation in tissues of adult trees and associated herbaceous species collected from contaminated areas in Central Europe found metal partitioning between tissues showed a minimum in the wood, with increasing concentrations of Cd and Zn towards the leaves and fine roots.

[Physiological and structural modifications induced by cadmium-calcium interaction in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum)].
The overall results suggest that the alteration of some plant growth process after exposure to cadmium can be attenuated by an adequate calcium contribution in culture medium. Expand
Natural variation in cadmium tolerance and its relationship to metal hyperaccumulation for seven populations of Thlaspi caerulescens from western Europe
Total shoot Cd accumulated per plant was much more closely related to population Cd tolerance than Cd hyperaccumulation, indicating that metal tolerance may be the more important selection criterion in developing lines with greatest phytoremediation potential. Expand
Interactive effects of cadmium and aluminum on growth and antioxidative enzymes in soybean
The effects of Al, Cd and pH on growth, photosynthesis, malondialdehyde (MDA) content, and some antioxidant enzyme activities of the two soybean cultivars with different Al tolerance were determinedExpand
Cadmium-induced toxicity reversal by zinc in Ceratophyllum demersum L. (a free floating aquatic macrophyte) together with exogenous supplements of amino- and organic acids.
Zn seemed to be less influential on organic acids-mediated detoxification mechanism as compared to amino acid mediated detoxification system, and the supplementation of organic acids to Cd treatments indicated detoxification through the mechanism of chelation. Expand
