Studies of toxic effects of Hg(II) on Pistia stratiotes



Studies of toxic effects of Hg(II) on Pistia stratiotes



Water, Air and Soil Pollution 24(4): 351-360



The uptake of Hg(II) and toxicity effect of the metal on some biochemical parameters in Pistia stratiotes L. were studied. The uptake of Hg(II) by the plants gradually increased with increase in concentration of Hg(II) in the culture medium. Maximum accumulation of Hg(II) was noted within 1 day. Maximum removal (about 90%) of Hg(II) was recorded below 20 ppm Hg(II). Accumulation of Hg(II) in roots was about four times higher than that in shoots.
