Effect of diuron and metribuzin on the root tip mitosis of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes)

, : Effect of diuron and metribuzin on the root tip mitosis of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes). Proceedings of the 8th international symposium on aquatic weeds, Uppsala, Sweden, 13-17 August 1990: 11-15

Laboratory experiments revealed that a gradual decrease in the percentage of mitotically active root tip cells of E. crassipes occurred as the concn (1-80 ppm) and contact time (24-72 h) of diuron and metribuzin increased. Complete inhibition of mitosis was observed with 40 ppm of metribuzin and diuron after 24 and 48 h, resp. Abnormalities of chromatin and chromosomes were rarely observed.

In this study, the interaction between temperature and light intensity was investigated in common water hyacinth (CWH) and purple root water hyacinth (PRWH). Effects of different temperatures (11/5, 18/11, 25/18, and 32/25 °C day/night) simultane...

Growing water hyacinth in the eutrophic urban water bodies suppressed algal growth and clarified the water. Hydrophobic root exudates were collected from the culture water by XAD-2 resin columns and separated by chromatography. The algicidal activ...

In a laboratory study the time required for E. crassipes plants to double their growth increased from 7 to 9 and decreeased from 9.6 to 8.1 days, resp., when PO4-P and NO3-N concn. in the medium were reduced from 6 to 3 mg/l. Reductions in N and P...
