Abstract

Lead uptake, translocation and mobility were investigated in Urtica dioica L. (stinging nettle). The root of stinging nettle absorbed 0.5 mg Pb/root from nutrient solution containing 0.01 mM Pb. Pb-concentration in the shoot was as follows: internodes > petioles > leaves decreasing towards the shoot tip. After removing the roots of Pb-treated plants and transferring the shoots to a Pb-free nutrient solution we found that Pb had not been transported back to the newly developing root but to the leaves in very small amounts. It was concluded that Pb was adsorbed on the walls of the xylem and its movement was controlled by transpiration.
