INVESTIGATION OF PHYTOINDICATION EFFECTS DUE TO CADMIUM CONTAMINATION
MetadataShow full item record
Heavy metals are one of the most dangerous contaminants in the natural environment that cause toxic effects in the cells of plants and animals. They are not decomposed in the environment but consequently accumulated in the tissues of living organisms. Penetrating, for example, plants, heavy metals can adversely affect the metabolic processes, which ultimately leads to a reduction in yield and poses a threat of contamination by toxicants to the further food chain.
