An In vivo Investigation of the Effects of Some Heavy Metals on the Development of Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Keywords:Heavy metal, Been seeds, Absorption, Germination
The effects of metals on the ecological system are very important, and their presence on certain limit values has negative effects on the living things. In particular, it has been determined that structural and functional changes are present in plants exposed to metals at high rates. The accumulation of heavy metals in the environment is a serious problem. In this study, the effect of heavy metals such as Co2+, Ni2+, Cu2+ and As3+ on the plant growth of the seeds of İspir bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), a species peculiar to the İspir region of Erzurum and well known by public, was investigated. As a result, it was observed that when the seeds were exposed to heavy metals, the plant showed an unhealthy growth and was adversely affected.
