Physiological Alterations and Heavy Metal Accumulation in the Lichen Pyxine cocoes (Sw.) Nyl. of Mandi District, Himachal Pradesh
Journal of Plant Growth Regulation
Pyxine cocoes (Sw.) Nyl., foliose lichen is widespread in the region and grows luxuriantly on the various substrata. For the elemental concentration and biochemical parameters, P. cocoes were collected from the Mandi district and were ana- lysed to assess their tolerance to heavy metals. Six parameters were estimated, including total chlorophyll concentration, carotenoid, protein, flavonoid, phenolic content, and heavy metals (Arsenic, Lead, Cadmium, Nickel, Copper), that are commonly used to determine …
