Single Binary and Ternary Effects of Cu, Cd and Hg on Photosynthetic Pigmnets of Isabgol and Lepidium
In environment Heavy metals are the most important sorts of contaminant. The present work aimed to study the interactive effects of copper (Cu), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg) on photosynthetic pigments of Isabgol and Lepidium. The present data suggest that decrease in carotenoids may be the reason for loss in pigments in heavy metal treated plants. Plants may be suffered from oxidative damage. The poor vegetative and reproductive growth may be due to loss in photosynthetic pigments in heavy metal treated plants.
