Paper Title:
Cadmium Stress on Wheat Morphology: Germination and Growth
  Abstract

In this study, the morphological responses of wheat to Cd during the whole growth stage were investigated in pot experiment with substrates containing 0, 1, 5, 10, 50 and 100 mg Cd/kg soil. The results showed that wheat was moderately tolerant to Cd stress, and the most sensitive endpoint to Cd toxicity was tiller number. The seed germination was not effected by Cd at all concentrations. The No Observed Adverse Effect Concentration (NOAEC) was 10 mg Cd/kg, and the Low Observed Adverse Effect Concentration (LOAEC) was 50 mg Cd/kg for the wheat.
