 en Potential of Mimulas glabratus check for this species in other resources in removal of Fe and Cu from the aqueous solutions containing Nitrate and Phosphate and its growth responses

Abstract

The metal bioabsorption potential and survival efficiency of aquatic macrophyte M. glabratus check for this species in other resources was examined for the removal of Fe and Cu in presence of nitrate and Phosphates. M.glabratus removes Fe 10% more than Cu in case of bio-chemical and physical responses the increment in fresh weight found 0.74% more in Fe treated plants than Cu treated plants and in photosynthetic pigments there was 10% more increment was noted in the plants treated with Fe. Bioabsorption of Fe was noted 18.9% more than Cu by M. glabratus. The results demonstrate that M.glabratus can be utilized in the remediation operations of aquatic systems
