Remarkable insights into the evolutionary potential of plants to respond to elevated soil Zn have recently been made through detailed anatomical, physiological, chemical, genetic and molecular characterizations of the brassicaceous Zn hyperaccumulators Thlaspi caerulescens and Arabidopsis halleri.
The tissues of brassicaceous plants contain many secondary compounds including glucosinolates (GSLs), which, upon disruption of tissues, are hydrolysed to form toxic compounds including isothiocyanates (ITCs) (Bending and Lincoln 1999).
