Effect of soil heavy metal contamination upon growth and nutrient composition of corn


, : Effect of soil heavy metal contamination upon growth and nutrient composition of corn. Dissertation Abstracts International, B 35(9): 4306-4307

In pot trials maize was given 0.05-2.0 meq Cd or Cr or 0.1-0.9 meq Ni or Zn. Application of Cd delayed emergence, stunted plants and decreased plant dry weight; plant Cd content increased with increased rate of applied Cd. Application of Cr significantly increased dry weight and Mn content but no Cr could be detected in tissues. Application of up to 3 meq Ni increased and higher rates decreased growth, while relatively high amounts of Ni were found in plants.

Late preterm infants are a vulnerable population susceptible to early breastfeeding failure and lactation-associated morbidities. We have found that late preterm gestation has a negative effect on mothers' psychological profiles in the puerpe...

Individual Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) from Fjellfrosvatn, northern Norway, could be categorized by their stomach contents as zooplanktivores or benthivores. Feeding specialization among these fish was evident from negative correlations betw...

Monoclonal antibody CO17-1A was radiolabeled with 90Y using the cyclic DTPA anhydride technique and administered intravenously to athymic nude mice bearing SW 948 human colorectal carcinomas. The tumor specificity of 90Y-CO17-1A was improved by co...
