i am doing a project that focuses on the germination rate of
seeds and how that rate is affected by acid rain and fertilizer, and i had a
question that i was hoping someone would be able to help me answer. here
goes. what chemical processes are disrupted within seed germination when
toxins such as mercury, lead, and cadmium are present in the soil. and how
does this affect the overall development of the plant?
