Accumulation and physiological effects of methyl mercury hydroxide on maize seedlings

, : Accumulation and physiological effects of methyl mercury hydroxide on maize seedlings. Environmental Pollution 8(2): 149-155

Significant amounts of Hg were absorbed and translocated by maize seedlings germinated in solutions containing 0, 0.05, 0.5, 5.0 or 50 ppm methyl mercury hydroxide (MMH). 5 and 50 ppm MMH inhibited shoot growth by 18 and 60%, respectively, and inhibited root growth by 55 and 81% compared with untreated control seedlings.
