Abstract: The effects of cadmium on the anatomical structures of different vegetative parts, namely root, stem and leaf of chickpea, Cicer arientinum L. was studied. Four different concentrations of CdCl2 e.g. 250, 500, 750 and 1000 μM were considered as treatments alongside non treated samples (control). In case of root anatomy decrease of root diameter, root cortex area, thick walled endodermal layer and reduced number of metaxylem vessels were observed compared to control. Similarly, stem diameter, cortical area, siz… Show more

“…Plant characteristics showed significant differences in the American and Sunshine cultivars grown in the Cd-Pig and Cd-Alon treatments (2.2 and 2.1 times different, respectively). Lisa et al 14 found a smaller area of the vascular bundle in chickpea ( C . arientinum ) treated with Cd solution when compared to untreated plants.…”

“…Comparison of leaf anatomical characteristics among various plant species grown in heavy metal-enriched soil may help identify heavy metal accumulation and patterns of distribution, and in cataloguing the effects of heavy metal toxicity and tolerance. Many plant species exposed to Cd toxicity exhibit alterations in leaf anatomical structures, examples include chickpea ( Cicer arientinum L.) and fenugreek ( Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) 14 . Furthermore, many reports indicate that the presence of certain essential nutrients in plant media can affect the modification of leaf anatomical characteristics.…”

“…The endodermal cells of the Cd-treated roots had smaller size and thick walls than those of the control plant roots. The stem diameter decreased due to the reduction in the size of cells and vascular elements under Cd stress [ 167 ]. In chickpea plants, the area of cortical stem cells was smaller due to the action of Cd compared to control plants.…”

“…For instance, the threshold of Cd toxicity varies from genotype to genotype, exposure duration, and concentration of dose (Rizwan et al, 2016). Reduction in yield of crops has been reported previously on several plant species such as barley (Lentini et al, 2018), pea (Januškaitienė, 2010), tomato (Hayat et al, 2012), Phaseolus vulgaris (Rady, 2011), Zea mays L. (Anjum et al, 2015), and Cicer arietinum L. (Hayat et al, 2013;Liza et al, 2020). Cd toxicity severely reduces the growth and yield traits of plants; however, severity depends on plant species, Cd level, and exposure period.…”
