Bioaccumulation Potential and Physiological Responses of Aquatic Macrophytes to Pb Pollution
In view of their potential bioaccumulation of heavy metals, Ceratophyllum demersum and Myriophyllum spicatum was studied under hydroponic cultures enriched by different Pb concentrations (25, 50, 75 mg/l) for 1–7 days. Both species exerted remarkable capabilities toconcentratePbintheirtissuesascomparedtocontrol.Thehighestaccumulationvalueof Pb (164.26 mg/g.dw) was recorded in C. demersum and the most of metal (91.72 mg/g dw) accumulated after 1 d.
