Abstract
The book chapter reviews the methodology and utility of five plant bioassays for detecting the mutagenicity of environmental chemicals. The bioassays described in this chapter are Vicia faba root tip, Tradescantia micronucleus for chromosome aberrations, tradescantia stamen hair, Arabidopsis embryo for gene mutation, and wheat seedling assay for aneuploidy.
