Nickel, in low concentrations, fulfills a variety of essential roles in plants, bacteria, and fungi. Therefore, Ni deficiency produces an array of effects on growth and metabolism of plants, including reduced growth, and induction of senescence, leaf and meristem chlorosis, alterations in
Nickel is required for plants at such low concentrations that analytical technologies were not available until the mid-1970s. Nickel is unique among plant nutrients because its func-tions in plant growth and development were described in detail before nickel was added to the list of essential elements. Nickel is a key component of selected enzymes
To investigate the effects of varying concentrations of Nickel (II) Chloride (0, 30, 60, 90, 120 mg/L) on the germination rate of Triticum aestivum by observing the number of seeds germinated over a period of 5 days in solutions of 0-5 days.
May 17, 2015 The aquatic plant Lemna gibba L. was used to investigate and compare the toxicity induced by 30 nm nickel oxide nanoparticles (NiO-NPs) and nickel(II) oxide as bulk (NiO-Bulk). Plants were exposed during 24 h to 01000 mg/L of NiO-NPs or NiO-Bulk. Analysis of physicochemical characteristics of nanoparticles in solution indicated agglomerations of NiO-NPs in culture medium
Nickel concentrations in drinking-water in European countries of 213 g/litre have been reported (28). An average value of 9 g/litre and a maximum of 34 g/litre were recorded in Germany (29). Nickel may, however, be leached from nickel-containing plumbing fittings, and levels of up to 500

Apr 29, 2015 Information about multi-elemental concentrations in different plant parts of tropical Ni hyperaccumulator species has the potential to provide insight into their unusual metabolism relative to a range of essential and non-essential elements, but this information is scant in the literature. As Ni hyperaccumulation, and possibly co-accumulation of other toxic elements, has been hypothesized to ...
Jun 01, 2009 Compartmentation of metals in specific tissues, cells, and subcellular compartments is considered a metal-tolerance mechanism in metal hyperaccumulator plants. In this study, we investigated the accumulation of Ni in the trichomes of a serpentine endemic Ni hyperaccumulator plant, Alyssum inflatum, native to western Iran. Elemental analysis of plants from their natural habitat showed that the ...
The plant must also be sufficiently mature to have developed a spread in concentrations. Interrelationship of other factors . Martin and Matocha (1973) stated that the basic principle of the use of plant analysis is that the chemical composition of the plant
Nickel accumulation in rats mainly occurs in lungs, where concentrations exceed those in other organs by 4-40 times. There are approximately 70 species of plants that accumulate extraordinarily high nickel concentrations. This may be up to 10,000 ppm (dry mass). For regular plant seed 0.5-2 ppm nickel in liquid substrates is considered toxic.
Plant Tissue Nickel Content. The Ni concentration in plant leaves ranges from 0.05 to 5 mg kg-1, which is equal to 0.055 ppm on a dry weight basis. The critical Ni concentration in plant tissues required for normal shoot growth of urea-fed tomato and zucchini is about 1 ppm. Nickel concentrations 10 ppm are generally considered to be toxic to sensitive species or cultivars.
Nickel concentrations found in the fruit were too low to pose a risk to human health. As a result of this research, it was verified that soils with nickel concentrations close to 70 mg kg-1, which is the limit established by the CONAMA resolution (420/2009), may actually represent an optimum concentration value for the development of tomato plants. It also increases productivity per plant and reduces the
In this study, multiple elements were analyzed in a range of different plant parts and transport fluids from Ni hyperaccumulator species collected from Sabah (Malaysia). The results show preferential accumulation of Ni in leaves over woody parts, but the highest concentrations were found in the phloem tissue (up to 7.9 % in Rinorea bengalensis) and phloem sap (up to 16.9 % in Phyllanthus balgooyi),
Essential Elements for Plant Growth Macronutrients and Micronutrients. Plant concentrations of essential elements may exceed the critical concentrations, the minimum concentrations required for growth, and may vary somewhat from species to species. Nonetheless, the following table gives the general requirements of plants ... Nickel Ni 0.1--1 ...
Nickel. Nickel is a plant micronutrient. It contributes to nitrogen fixation and the metabolism of urea (a nitrogen containing compound) and is important for seed germination. Nickel is also important for bacteria and fungi, which are both important for good plant growth. Ideally, for healthy and productive soil the concentration of 120 mg/kg.
germination and growth of competing plant species through an increase in nickel concentrations in the nearby soil, via leaf litter deposition (Martens Boyd, 1994 Boyd Jaffre, 2001). In concert, this could also benet seedlings of the hyperaccumulator plant itself (van der Ent etal., 2015a). In this issue of New Phytologist van der Ent etal.
Apr 11, 2003 Berkheya coddii is a fast-growing, high biomass nickel (Ni) hyperaccumulator plant that has recently attracted attention for its possible use in the phytoextraction of Ni.

For some elements, many studies were pot studies in which inorganic salt s were added to soil. Information regarding soil and plant concentrations,
We do know that high nickel concentrations on sandy soils can clearly damage plants and high nickel concentrations in surface waters can diminish the growth rates of algae. Micro organisms can also suffer from growth decline due to the presence of nickel, but
Essential nutrients in the soil include nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium along with calcium, magnesium, and various trace metals such as nickel and iron. These nutrients play a role in development of plant tissue. Not only is the presence of these nutrients important, but
Micronutrients are boron, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, and zinc. A very few plants need five other nutrients cobalt, nickel, silicon, sodium, and vanadium. Each essential nutrient affects specific functions of plant growth and development (Table 1). Plant growth is limited by the nutrient that is in the shortest supply (Fig. 1).
