Chlorophyll fluorescence as a technique for the detection of atrazine in soil

, : Chlorophyll fluorescence as a technique for the detection of atrazine in soil. Applied Plant Science 4(2): 84-85

Chlorophyll fluorescence assays were carried out on the leaves of oat plants. Seed were either directly sown into atrazine-treated soil (0, 0.025, 0.05; 0.1; 0.25; 0.5; and 1.0 mg ai kg-1), or plants were brought into contact with similarly treated soil after a period of growth. Differences in fluorescence were detected between all the lower concentrations up to 0.25 mg kg-1 within 72 hours after the roots of 14 days old plants had been brought into contact with atrazine-treated soil. Chlorophyll fluorescence appears to be a rapid method for assaying low concentrations of atrazine in soil.

The discharge of cooling water favours the occurrence of freshwater limpets. Reproduction of Ancylus fluviatilis is stimulated by the higher temperature of the cooling water; the life cycle of Ferrissia wautieri (nearly exclusively found in the ou...
