Cultivated plants as indicators of phytotoxicity and mutagenesis of contaminated environments

Cultivated plants as indicators of phytotoxicity and mutagenesis of contaminated environments

Pol' nohospodarstvo 35(2): 122-131

The use of field crops for observation of phytotoxicity and mutagenesis in a contaminated environment is discussed and suitable methods recommended. Pollen grains and pollen mother cells can be used as indicators as well as cytogenetic analysis of chromosome and genome mutations in meristematic tissues. A set of cultivated plants are proposed as indicators for observations of phytotoxicity and mutagenesis, caused by contamination of soil, air, and irrigation water.
