3. The Effect of Elevated Ca2+ Concentrations on Cadmium-Induced Acceleration of Leaf Senescence Nandita Thakur, Shanti S. Sharma and Kamal Kishore The present study is aiming at assessing the influence of Cd2+ on dark-induced senescence of excised Tropaeolum majus leaves. Besides determining the effects of Cd2+ applied individually on leaf senescence, its interactive effects with elevated Ca2+ is also determined. The experimental design involved incubation of excised T. majus leaves in dark in the absence (control) and presence of Cadmium, Ca+ either individually or in combination for 7
