Abstract

Abstract The increase in length of apices of Ascophyllum nodosum (L.) Le Jolis was measured in paired combinations of Cu, Hg, and Zn. Significant antagonistic effects appeared with exposure to Cu + Zn after 3 days ( P < 0.001), and with Hg and Zn after 4 days ( P < 0.01). When Cu and Hg were combined, only a weak antagonistic effect was indicated after 7 days of exposure. It is supposed that the observed detoxificating effect of Zn to Cu and Hg is partly related to the relative number of ions present.
