- ... It has been shown that halophytes are able to successfully cope with heavy metal toxicity, suggesting their possible use for remediation of metal contaminated soils. In this work, Ni tolerance and accumulation in two halophytes, Sesuvium portulacastrum (L.) L. and Cakile maritima Scop. was investigated. Seedlings of both species were subjected hydroponically during 21 days to 0, 25, 50, and 100 μM ...

- ... It has previously been shown that certain halophytes can grow and produce biomass despite of the contamination of their saline biotopes with toxic metals. This suggests that these plants are able to cope with both salinity and heavy metal constraints. NaCl is well tolerated by halophytes and apparently can modulate their responses to Cd. However, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. This stud ...
