Effect of groundwater quality for some wells in Nineveh city on generation and growth plant Phalaris sp.


The research includes study of four types of water (first one is a tab water as a control, while the other types are groundwater (2nd,3ed,4th). The water types were different in some physical and chemical characteristic, for example their electrical conductivity values were (585,993,3013 and 6930) µmohs/cm respectively. The study considered the effect of water quality on some growth characteristic such as percentage of germination, and some growth characteristics in addition to their impact on the concentration of chlorophyll a,b and c and carbohydrates. Results revealed that there is a significant decrease in the most growth characteristic in addition to chlorophyll a,b and c concentration whereas significant increase in the carbohydrates was detected comparing with the effect control water.
