Abstract
Methylmercury was found in the tissue of the pea plant (Pisum sativum) after spraying mercuric nitrate onto the leaves, after planting in mercuric nitrate or phenylmercuric acetate contaminated soil and after infiltration and incubation of stems, leaves, and apices in mercuric nitrate or phenylmercuric acetate solutions. The concentration of mercury added in each experiment was 10 micrograms/gram. Younger pea tissue formed more methylmercury than older tissue. Methylmercury was also found in three different species of plant growing near an abandoned mercury mine.
