Phytoextraction Efficiency of Cadmium and Zinc by Arum (Colocasia esculenta L.) Grown in Hydroponics
Environment Control in Biology
Cadmium (Cd) and Zinc (Zn) tolerance and phytoextraction efficiency of arum (Colocasia esculenta L.) were investigated in hydroponics. Plants were grown for 60 d in nutrient solution after addition of Cd and Zn at the levels of 0, 15, 30 and 60 mol L 1 and 0, 100, 500 and 1,000 mol L 1 , respectively. Growth of arum was unaffected by low levels of metal concentration (15 mol L 1 Cd and 100 mol L 1 Zn) whereas it decreased gradually with the increase of metal concentration in solution.doi:10.2525/ecb.55.113 fatcat:plu72ao2fnatzkqro56xtjwbuq
