ABSTRACT

Pollution of the globe with toxic heavy metals has increased dramatically since the foundation of the industrial revolution. Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the effects of different heavy metal concentrations on living plants. Numerous in vitro experiments have focused on the effects of high concentrations of heavy metals on the regeneration of plants viz. accumulator, tolerant or sensitive to industrial pollution. Selection of plants under natural conditions of environmental pollution or in vitro may result in the selection of clones, accumulator to toxic metal ions.

This piece of research was conducted to assess the phytoremediation potential of Datura inoxia. Effect of increasing concentrations of heavy metal such as Cadmium and Nickel was determined using in vitro established cultures of Datura. Present study has shown that both the metals have somewhat similar effect on Datura and this is a good accumulator plant for the use in phytoremediation.
