The Use of Chlorella Vulgaris in a Simple Demonstration of Heavy Metal Toxicity.
Gipps, J. F.; Biro, P.
Journal of Biological Education, v12 n3 p207-14 Sep 1978
An experimental system, suitable for secondary schools, uses Chlorella vulgaris to demonstrate the effects of mercury and cadmium. Very low concentrations of mercury or cadmium decrease growth, whereas lead or arsenic have little effect. Further experiments show additive interactions between mercury and cadmium and antagonistic interactions between cadmium and zinc. (Author/BB)
