A method to assess taxonomic variation in shoot caesium concentration among flowering plants (1999)
Journal Article
Willey, N. J., Broadley, M. R., Willey, N., & Mead, A. (1999). A method to assess taxonomic variation in shoot caesium concentration among flowering plants. Environmental Pollution, 106(3), 341-349. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0269-7491%2899%2900105-0

A method was developed to obtain relative shoot caesium (Cs) concentration data from the literature and assess the influence of plant taxonomy on these values. A residual maximum likelihood (REML) analysis was performed on data from 14 published stud...

A comparison of caesium uptake kinetics in eight species of grass (1999)
Journal Article
Dennis, E. R., Philippidis, C., Willey, N. J., Broadley, M. R., & Willey, N. (1999). A comparison of caesium uptake kinetics in eight species of grass. Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, 46(2), 225-236. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0265-931X%2898%2900128-3

The Michaelis-Menten kinetic parameters (I(max) K(m) and C(min)) of CS uptake were estimated using a solution-depletion method, after 0, 1 and 4 d K-starvation in eight mature grass species of different relative growth rates (Bromus sterilis L., Elym...
