Effect of Heavy Metals on Plants: An Overview

2016-4-8  Mining activities generate a large amount of waste rocks and tailings, which get deposited at the surface. Excess of Cu in soil plays a cytotoxic role, induces stress and causes injury to plants. This leads to plant growth retardation and leaf chlorosis [30, 57]. Exposure of plants to excess Cu generates oxidative stress and ROS [58].
