Differences in root uptake of radiocaesium by 30 plant taxa (1997)
Journal Article
Willey, N. J., Broadley, M. R., & Willey, N. (1997). Differences in root uptake of radiocaesium by 30 plant taxa. Environmental Pollution, 97(1-2), 11-15. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0269-7491%2897%2900090-0

The concentration of Cs was measured in the shoots of 30 taxa of plants after exposing the roots for 6 h to 0.1 μg radiolabelled Cs g-1 soil. There were maximum differences between Chenopodium quinoa and Koeleria macrantha of 20-fold in Cs concentrat... Read More about Differences in root uptake of radiocaesium by 30 plant taxa.

A comparison of stable caesium uptake by six grass species of contrasting growth strategy (1997)
Journal Article
Martin, M. H., Willey, N. J., Willey, N., & Martin, M. H. (1997). A comparison of stable caesium uptake by six grass species of contrasting growth strategy. Environmental Pollution, 95(3), 311-317. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0269-7491%2896%2900144-3

Six plant species in the family Gramineae were used to investigate the relationship between Cs uptake, nutrient regime and plant growth strategy sensu Grime. The roots of 66 day old Elymus repens (L.) Gould., Bromus sterilis L., Agrostis stolonifera...
